Putin Enemy Alexei Navalny Released From Jail

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny, a vocal critic of President Vladimir Putin, was released from jail on Sunday after spending 20 days behind bars for organizing public meetings and rallies unlawfully. Navalny is likely to run for president against Putin next year, but he has been declared ineligible for office over a suspended prison sentence. Navalny says the decision was politically motivated. If Putin runs again next year, he is expected to win a fourth term.
