BBC NEWS/Tens of thousands of people defied a heavy police presence to join some of the largest rallies against President Vladimir Putin in years.

In Moscow, riot police were seen beating and dragging away protesters.

Mr Navalny, President Putin’s most high-profile critic, called for protests after his arrest last Sunday.

He was detained after he flew back to Moscow from Berlin, where he had been recovering from a near-fatal nerve agent attack in Russia last August.

On his return, he was immediately taken into custody and found guilty of violating parole conditions.
