27 March 2017 Current Affairs: Russia’s main opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was arrested at an anti-corruption protest.
Thousands of people took to the streets to demonstrate against corruption and demand the resignation of Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
Navalny, a lawyer and anti-corruption blogger who heads Russia’s Progress Party, called for the nationwide protests after he published reports claiming that Medvedev controlled mansions, yachts and vineyards — a fortune that far outstripped his official salary.
Navalny became known as one of the leading critics of Putin and the ruling United Russia party during protests in 2011 against Putin’s return to the presidency.
He announced his intention to run for President in 2018 against Vladimir Putin. But he is barred from doing so after being found guilty in a case he said was politicised.
