Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was barred on Monday from running in next year's presidential election after officials ruled he was ineligible to take part due to a suspended prison sentence he says was trumped up.

Navalny, the most formidable foe President Vladimir Putin has faced during 18 years in power, is prohibited from seeking political office because of a criminal conviction that is largely viewed as retribution.

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday said that the situation in Afghanistan would be worse without the presence of United States troops in the country, Russian news agencies reported.

Navalny came under pressure from authorities as he gained popularity. "It would be better if Putin was to be replaced by anyone", Ms Komendant said. 12 members of the 13-member commission voted to bar Navalny.

"We are announcing a voters' strike", Navalny said. "It involves only Putin and those candidates whom he personally chose, who do not pose a slightest threat to him". Sorokina said she was "a little bit scared". He spearheaded massive anti-government protests in 2011-2012 in reaction to wide-spread fraud during the parliamentary election.

"A lot of the people who support him are very young, like 19 or 20 years old - sometimes even younger", Dougherty said, and they have been exposed to the rest of the world and the way the rest of the world lives, and they are dissatisfied.

"The first is to extend the amnesty timeline, I mean external restrictions are not easing, but, on the contrary, tending to rise", he said. Putin's representatives are expected to file his nomination papers on Tuesday.

"Putin will nearly without a doubt win the election", Dougherty said, "because he is supported by the majority of Russians and because the system is organized.to favor his candidacy".
