Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, possibly the biggest political thorn in Vladimir Putin’s side, has already declared himself a candidate for presidential elections in March next year. His chances of actually winning the top job at the Kremlin are slim, but that hasn’t stopped the anti-corruption activist from opening dozens of campaign offices and continuing to stage unsanctioned demonstrations.

A programme prepared by Jessica Sestilli, Patrick Lovett and Perrine Desplats.
