MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Wednesday called on his supporters to hold protest rallies across the country on June 12, which is the annual Russia Day public holiday.

Navalny, who wants to run for president in 2018, was freed earlier this week from jail where he spent 15 days for his role in nationwide protests last month which ended with over 1,000 arrests.
