Putin critic Alexei Navalny has been jailed for a further 19 years, at a trial in a remote penal colony.
Mr Navalny, a former opposition leader, was found guilty of founding and funding an extremist organisation and activities. He denies the charges.
He is already serving a nine-year term for parole violations, fraud and contempt of court. The charges are widely viewed as politically motivated.
Since his jailing in 2021, Mr Navalny has been held at a remote penal colony.
In a message posted on social media ahead of the verdict, Mr Navalny expressed his belief that he would be handed a “Stalinist” style prison term designed to frighten other potential dissenters.
More to come.
