Supporters of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny took part in anti-corruption protests in various cities around Russia on Sunday, January 28. Navalny called for the demonstrations to take place after he was disqualified from standing in the 2018 Russian presidential election due to a criminal record stemming from 2013 embezzlement charges. Navalny and his supporters claim the charges were politically motivated. On the same day as the nationwide protests, police officers raided Navalny’s offices in Moscow, claiming that they were investigating a bomb threat, according to a spokeswoman for Navalny.
