Putin Critic Navalny Jailed For Seven Days Over Protest

by Wochit 1:01 mins

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was jailed for a week by a court on Tuesday for resisting arrest at a protest over the convictions of activists for attacking police at a 2012 rally against President Vladimir Putin. Moving swiftly to curb the protest, Russian riot police on Monday detained hundreds of Kremlin opponents for demonstrating against what they called a "show trial" intended to discredit the opposition and quash dissent. "7 days for Alexei @navalny," his spokeswoman, Anna Veduta, wrote on her Twitter feed. The punishment handed to Navalny and others at the protest sends a signal that the Kremlin will not tolerate unsanctioned protests, with an eye on the upheaval in neighboring Ukraine where demonstrations have unseated President Viktor Yanukovich.
