Jailed Opposition Leader Pondering Next Move To Challenge Putin's Power

Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny has been jailed for 30 days after being found guilty of organizing repeatedly for unlawful protests.

On Monday, the protest leader was one of almost 1,400 people detained during mass protests, a sign the Kremlin has little patience for Russians who stand opposed to president Vladimir Putin.

 In similar, Navalny-led protests in March, as many as 700 protesters, including Navalny, were arrested. 

While attendance for this week's Russia Day demonstrations was said to be lower than the mass protests in March, Navalny's influence was clear as protesters jostled with police and yelled anti-Putin messages.
