On Tuesday, may 15, the European court of human rights ruled that Russian authorities violated the rights of opposition and founder of the Fund of struggle against corruption Alexei Navalny, when he refused issuance of the passport.

The protests initiated by opposition leader Navalny, who was detained nearly immediately after the appearance at the rally, but later released until the hearing.

The Moscow City Court told Interfax that the terms of arrest Navalny was sentenced to do not add up.

Navalny's lawyer Vadim Kobzev said the trial had "clearly political motives" as Mr Putin begins a fourth Kremlin term.

Russian Federation has paid 900 million rubles ($14.5 million) in compensation for ECHR rulings in 2017, Russia's human rights ombudswoman estimated this week, the state-run TASS news agency reported. Separately, he was also convicted of disobeying police during the rally and sentenced to 15 days, but that sentence would be counted as part of the 30 days under Russian law. This will run concurrently with the first sentence and he should not be in jail for any longer than 30 days.

Navalny tweeted from the courtroom that he was sentenced simply for "getting out on the street of my city and saying: 'I'm not your slave, and I will never be".
