Putin critic Navalny sentenced to 9 years in prison, his lawyers briefly detained by Russian police

1 min read

A Russian court sentenced jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny to nine years in prison on Tuesday for fraud and contempt.

His existing sentence will be incorporated into the one-handed down on Tuesday, said his lawyers, both of whom were briefly detained after the hearing after speaking to reporters about the verdict.

Prosecutors had sought to add 13 years to Navalny’s original sentence in the latest criminal case, in which he was accused of using 356 million rubles (US$3.42 million) in donations collected by his foundation for personal purposes.

Lawyer Olga Mikhailova said Navalny would appeal the conviction: “Alexei is feeling good – he was sure of his innocence, he argued his innocence.”
