Prominent Putin critic Alexei Navalny arrested again

Posted

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was detained by police as he left his Moscow home on Friday to attend a pre-election rally in a provincial town. Russia holds a presidential election in March which incumbent Vladimir Putin is widely expected to contest. Navalny hopes to run despite Russia's central election commission declaring him ineligible because of a suspended prison sentence which he says was politically-motivated.
