moscow - In about eighty-eight cities in Russia, Saturday, supporters of opposition leader Aleksej Navalni are expecting to protest against President Vladimir Putin and for fair elections. Putin celebrates his 65th birthday on Saturday.
In most places no permission was given for the protests under the title of Navalni. Observers expect the demonstrations to turn out in confrontations with the police.
Opposition leader Navalni will not be in the demonstrations himself because he is stuck. He was sentenced to twenty days cell phone last Monday because of the call for forbidden demonstrations.
