    Russian opposition leader, dissident, Kremlin critic … Alexei Navalny has many titles.

    Some see him as one of the few people who can unite opponents against President Vladimir Putin.

    But nowadays, he’s limited to speaking his mind in court or in jail.

    His allies are disbanding as a Moscow prosecutor seeks to label his organisations ‘extremist’.

    So what’s next for Russia’s opposition movement, and those who’ve stood behind Navalny?

    Alexander Soloviev – Open Russia opposition group.

    Michael Bociurkiw – Former Spokesman, OSCE.
