Russian justice on Tuesday sentenced critical Kremlin opponent Alexei Navalny to a three-and-a-half-year prison sentence for breaching the terms of his probation.

This Tuesday’s sanction supposes the reimposition of a conviction for embezzlement that had been suspended in 2014.

The conviction is because Navalny had missed your probation appointments when he was in a coma in a hospital in Germany recovering from an assassination attempt with the nerve agent novichok.
