The Moscow Times: Navalny Sentenced to 20 Days After Month-Long Jail Stint25 September 2018 | 02:56 | FOCUS News Agency
Navalny's supporters said he was arrested moments after walking from jail at the end of his previous stint handed down for planning an unauthorized demonstration in Moscow in January that called for a boycott of what he said would be a rigged presidential election.
He appeared again in court on Monday evening where he was found guilty of organizing an illegal protest on Sept. 9, his supporters said.
Navalny, 42, denied to the court any involvement in the illegal protest on Sept. 9 because he had been in jail at the time when Moscow authorities turned down an opposition request for the rally. "I had no means of communication, no Internet... I was completely isolated," he said.
