Fresh protests are expected in Russia

Russian opposition activists are calling for more protests this weekend after thousands of people participated in rallies across the country after the arrest of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.

Supporters of Mr Navalny are readying themselves for more protests after coming out last Saturday to demand Mr Navalny be released from prison.

The protests have largely been attended by younger Russians who say they do not want to be under Putin’s regime any longer.
