Russian opposition leader Navalny sentenced to 30 days in jail

A Moscow court handed Alexei Navalny a 30-day jail sentence for staging an unauthorized protest on May 5. Organized under the slogan “He is not our Tsar!” the anti-Vladimir Putin protests resulted in hundreds of arrests around the country. Navalny has faced multiple legal cases over embezzlement and fraud, and was barred from running in Russia’s presidential election in March.
