BBC News - Putin critic gets suspended sentence

"Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has avoided jail after being convicted in a high-profile fraud case.
Navalny was given a suspended prison sentence of three-and-a-half years for defrauding two firms.
But his brother Oleg is facing a three-and-a-half year custodial sentence.
Navalny has consistently said the charges were politically motivated. He accused President Vladimir Putin's government of targeting the relatives of his opponents.


In few hours from now (19:00 Moscow time) there is supposed to be a big rally at the Manezhnaya square in Navalny's support... could get interesting.
