The Moscow Times: Navalny Jailed for 30 Days for Organizing Anti-Putin Protests16 May 2018 | 02:20 | FOCUS News Agency
Navalny was one of an estimated 1,600 protesters detained at the “He’s Not Our Tsar” demonstrations that he organized in dozens of Russian cities on May 5.
A court in Moscow on Tuesday handed down a 30-day sentence against Navalny for a repeat violation of public assembly rules and disobeying police orders, the Media Zona news outlet reported.
Initial hearings were postponed last week to hear witness testimony from police officers.
Navalny’s offices across Russia have been subject to police raids and his volunteers arrested on a variety of charges since the protests.
