Aleksei Navalny, Russian Opposition Leader, Appears in Court
"In the Russian capital. Moscow has ordered the opposition activist Aleksei Navalny, to serve more than 2.5 years of a jail term for embezzlement. Mr. Navalny had earlier launched a blistering attack on President Putin. As our correspondent at the court, Sarah Rainsford reports he's being detained, repeatedly prosecuted several times at last year, Aleksei Navalny was poisons. Now the Russian opposition leader is going to jail. He greeted the news in court with a resigned shrug. That's not what I said earlier from a glass cage Alexander family had condemned this latest move against him as a show trial meant to scare millions of Russians, he said to crush dissent. He spoke like a man with nothing left to fear. After shooting death by poisoning. Last year, Mr Navalny mocked Russia's president, and claimed he'd given the order to have his rival killed. People will buy. Vladimir Putin wants to be known as a great world leader, Aleksei Navalny said. So he's upset that he'll now go down in history. As Vladimir the poisoner of the underpants, Mr Navalny believes a nerve agent was smeared in his underwear by Russian security service agents. Mr Putin has said the FSB had nothing to do with it.

His wife, Julia novel, there was among the hundreds who were arrested in the Russian capital. Moscow correspondent Sara Rainsford was also on the streets. So how was the day? It was pretty dramatic. I mean, Barricaded off. There were right place there from the early morning and a lot of shops and stuff have been closed as well. Toe to deter people from coming out. There were small groups all over the place. But suddenly, at one point they all converge near Theory, Leningrad train station and they began heading for the prison where Alexander Bonnie is being held on remand and the crowd. At one point there was a huge crowd swarming across the main road and the police At first, just letting them pass. But eventually, the right place. Reinforcements were sent in in very big numbers. So there were then swift detentions. Dozens. Hundreds of people here in Moscow detained some of them quite brutally being dragged face first towards police fans, mainly a younger crowd. Yeah, you know, itwas compared to last Saturday. I would say that there were predominantly younger people in the crowd this time, So it was a bit more diverse last time. One of the young I don't mean you know teenagers, which is something that the Kremlin and the authorities here accused the missing around the supporters of of bringing out young young people Minors under 18 onto the streets. No, there were students. There were people in their twenties people in their thirties and they were, you know, they were very vocal. They were prepared to shout in the face of the riot place to demand. Alexander van is release. But what was interesting, I think was that of the people I spoke to the vast majority told me that they weren't really big fans of Mr Navalny himself. They were there because they see him as a symbol off a political leadership, which refuses political competition. They see him as a symbol of democracy on as a symbol of choice. Yes, interesting. What you say about the young but not the very young or the old older people? Because are they? Perhaps reacting to what President Putin himself said he talked, I think about The leaders of the movement being terrorists who are using women and Children, Aziz Shields Missing, if only has traditionally had quite a big following amongst the people in their early twenties. He's got a lot of young supporters right across Russia, but I think you know the reason that people were younger today is probably because of the risk they were facing. I think some of the sort of older, more cautious people basically stayed away because Last Saturday. We saw a huge number of people detained more than 4000 people across Russia. It wasn't particularly violent, but people fear for the consequences of getting detained. So this time Slightly younger, perhaps more more prone to taking risks. Crowds there on the streets. But you know you have to bear in mind. What risk you face. If you protest in this country, it is basically illegal tow protest. Even one person pickets when you stand with a placard almost impossible to do these days, so people are facing not only short term police detentions, but often criminal cases, criminal charges.

"In 2000. Protesters are said to be arrested across the country with right please dragging them away and beating demonstrators. I've been speaking to the BBC's Sarah Rainsford, who watched the protests in Moscow. I think the scale was pretty significant. There were a lot of people who came out. Don't forget this was an unauthorized protests and they're being a huge number of warnings from the authorities before it took place. So people warned that there could be prosecutions that there could be a rest but also of course, warned about the covert pandemic and Told that there would be a spiking in covert cases after this mass gathering. So every possible threat if you like was mentioned, But still people came onto the streets, and I think you know, a lot of people just told us they felt they had to be there after Alex saying of only had been arrested, you know his poisoning wasn't bad enough, then the fact that he might be Facing a long prison sentence brought a huge number of people out onto the streets, and they were very, very determined. They really wanted their voices to be heard, and they were shouting freedom. They were shouting, release him! They were also shouting Russia Without Putin, they sort of standard chant off Mr Navalny's supporters on a so I understand it, the right police were reasonably tolerant to begin with. But then tempers started to fray. Yeah, I think that's right. I mean, before the big crowds gathered. In fact, when the riot police probably outnumbered the protesters, they were, they were circling around Pushkin Square, and they would swoop on anyone they suspected of being there for the protests on drag them off to the police fans. But then, when the crowd grew and vastly outnumbered the police and the police sort of stood back, But then there was some Argue barges and pushing and shoving between police and protesters. A bit couple of the barriers, the metal barriers went flying and the right place, then went running. In one point, We saw a big column of them running past with their police dogs as well. And so at that point, I think you know, the patients really, really wore out, and they began than to shove people back in a very Practiced method from the main square into force him into side streets and to stop blocking off streets and breaking up the protest, which they effectively did within a couple of hours or so, and just leaving sort of small groups, the protesters roaming the streets. Some of them at one point, pelting police officers with snowballs on D a some of them getting beaten with the police battles in response on it's best to know Sarah scenes like this being repeated. In some way or other across Russia today in different cities. Yeah, pretty similar scenes. Although on different scales. This was the biggest turnout. I think we can safely say, But, yeah, I think it is significant that this was this is a widespread day of protests and nationwide day of protests, which is what, Mr Navalny. Called for in a bear in mind that this is a man that the Kremlin always insists. Doesn't matter. He's a nobody. He has no support. You know, he's not allowed on state media. He's never even mentioned by name by the Kremlin. And yet he is Theo only person who has real Paul. You can actually get people out on the streets in Russia and across Russia, as he showed again today, so I think it is significant, you know, supporters Opponents of Mr Navalny would say. Well, these crowds are not vast. No, they're not. But you know, this is Russia. The protests were not authorized. It is extremely risky to come out on again. You know, Mr Navalny, as I say, doesn't have access to state media, for example, So it's an interesting moment. I think that the Kremlin will be watching very, very carefully to see how people have responded. Mr Navalny's impending potential imprisonment and therefore to decide what they do. Next is the BBC's Sarah Rainsford in Moscow will among those out on the streets today with Zanna names over Journalist activists and daughter of the Russian liberal politician, Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in 2015 in Moscow. She was in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, about 400 kilometers east of Moscow. I was born and raised in Michigan, All Grodd and my father was governor of the province of Nation of God. That is why I decided to join the protests here today. I took to the streets because I wanted to support Alexi Navalny. My demand was so immediately release Alexei Navalny. I think that his attention was completely unlawful. And the whole trial was unlawful. I know him personally, He is my personal friend. And I think that his life right now is in great danger is one off their most powerful voices in Russia against Vladimir Putin, and it was not a political choice for me. It was a moral choice for me. I couldn't have stayed at home on this day and I couldn't have forgiven myself for not heaven during the protest today, though, I understood that it was quite frisky because these products that took place across Russia we're not sanctioned by the Russian authorities. But I'm relying on the Russian Constitution, and it says an article 31 that Russian citizens can together peacefully. That's the main warm and they didn't violate any laws today, but I mean, the government doesn't follow animals right now in Russia, unfortunately, Was this just about Alexey Navalny, Jonah. Or was it about something more? It was about Alexander of Worldly and, of course, more people took to the streets today because they had watched a Navalny's most recent documentary about wouldn't spell us, But I think another important factor is that many Russians are really child off prudence leadership. They do not see any better future under his leadership. They do not see any career prospects in our country. I talked today to a girl. I asked her why she was there. And she answered that Russia is such a bad place that I don't even want to give birth to my Children. And there were many, many young people that have a completely different vision. There are thinking progressively, and they understand that under the current political leadership, no change for the better could be foreseen and could be expected and they have no choice but to take to the streets. Has rusted changed at all. Since the assassination of your father, do you feel in 2015? I rely on my personal feelings. So I follow politics quite closely. But now answered this question. I will rely on my personal feelings and the my feelings that yes, Russia has changed a lot. Since my father's assassination. I think that people are now poorer than they used to be because in Russia were now undergoing and not economic downturn. The gap between the rich and their poor is widening. People are no longer excited with the annexation of Crimea with also called geo political victories They want to have this implies here in our country, and they now understand that it can be achieved only for Political actions.

"Happening in Belarus. What's the view from Moscow, the most important ally for Minsk and President Alexander Lukashenko. You can speak now to our correspondent Sarah Rainsford in Moscow. But Sarah before we talk about what President Putin might be saying or thinking about what's happening on the ground. What more can you tell us about how widespread this strike has been? Well, I think it's difficult to say. I mean, certainly this is a concerted push by the opposition forces in galleries to try to increase the pressure on Alexander Lukashenko using the economy is there As their weapon if you like, but state workers under a huge amount of pressure from the state itself, a swell so we've seen in previous attempts to call national strikes. That is quite difficult because people Face losing their jobs. They're threatened with redundancy. And they also of course, face detention. And so I think looking at social media accounts today, which is basically what I'm reduced to doing because they're not accredited me to work in in Minsk. So it looks like the strike is fairly broad. But the numbers are not huge. Certainly, opposition groups are talking about people disrupting production lines. They're not talking about factories grinding to a halt in the crowds. The picket lines outside those Qi State Enterprises. Ah, are significant the very fact that that there is significant but the numbers are not massive at this point. What there is, though, is is a concurrent protest again in Minsk. A student's on DH pensioners have taken to the streets in a big march through the city center, and also the opposition is calling for everyone to come out at around six o'clock this evening. So I think you know the pressure is just beginning. This is kind of like a second wave of pressure from the opposition in their attempts to push Alexander Lukashenko to resign on DH. He has obviously consistently refused to do so, saying that he won those August elections. What's the view, then from Moscow and President Putin's continued support of President Lukashenka? Moscow's staying relatively quiet in this. Certainly it has supported and Alexander Lukashenko, unlike most other countries that recognizes him as the elected president of Belarus on DSO supports him in that said, Thank you, Mr Lukashenko is being here. T. C. Vladimir Putin So there is that direct support, which I think is critical. For Alexander Lukashenko. But I think Russia is aware that it doesn't want to push too hard and doesn't want to be seen to be interfering too far because it does know that that will turn many Della Russians against Moscow. And so far, this has not been a anti Moscow movement in Delaware's, But there is the risk of that happening if Moscow pushes too hard. Sarah Rainsford, a correspondent in Moscow.
