The 43-year-old opposition leader and his associates last summer organized protests in Moscow that brought thousands of people into the streets to demand fair elections.

In August, Russian investigators launched a money-laundering investigation into Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK).

This month, FBK was declared a "foreign agent" and the opposition leader's offices have been raided repeatedly.
