Calls for pro-Navalny protests come from abroad - Kremlin

Invitations to organize or participate in rallies in support of the Russian opposition politician, Alexey Navalny, are coming from abroad, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov (pictured) stated on Monday.

During a daily press conference, Peskov described the calls as "provocative," adding that he doesn't know "whether anyone in Russian regions and cities has ever filed a request for any rallies," as translated by TASS.

He went on to warn that "any unauthorized" gathering will be "considered illegal," and prosecuted to the extent of the Russian law.
