    Supporters of Russian opposition figure Alexei #Navalny have taken to the streets on Sunday to demand his release from prison. The unsanctioned #rallies are being staged across the country for a second consecutive weekend.

    Last Saturday saw a number of violent clashes between law enforcement and demonstrators, which appears to have triggered a even larger police response ahead of the latest events. In #Moscow, security services have erected metal barriers, closing off the city center, including the area around the Kremlin. In an unprecedented step, at least in modern times, seven central subway stations were also closed.
