In Moscow, authorities introduced unprecedented security measures in the city centre, closing several subway stations near the Kremlin, cutting bus traffic and ordering restaurants and shops to stay closed.

Navalny himself remains in jail, where he has been held since being arrested two weeks ago on his arrival to Moscow after returning to Russian Federation for the first time since recovering from a nerve agent poisoning. President Biden spoke about Navalny in a phone call with Putin on Tuesday. I mean, if that is the case and these protests are igniting across the country, does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat?

Yulia, a 40-year-old protester in Moscow, said she had come to the protests despite having a panic attack the night before because of worrying about repercussions for taking part. "The police don't think about law at all", he said.

A makeshift court at a police station ordered the anti-graft campaigner placed in custody until his trial on charges of violating the terms of a 2014 suspended sentence. In a country ruled by corruption.

Navalnaga's lawyer said Navalnaga was released on Sunday evening, but police prepared a file regarding her participation in the demonstration, according to Russian news agency Interfax.

Navalny's allies used social media to repeatedly change the location of their rally, scattering the crowds over different parts of Moscow and making it harder to disperse.

Police put turnout at the Moscow protest at around 2,000 people. In some videos, police were filmed shocking protesters who were already detained.

At least 4,000 peaceful protesters were detained in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and other Russian cities on January 31. She was later released.

The headquarters of Alexey Navalny announced the completion of the action in Moscow.

President Vladimir Putin does not take well to direct open challenges to his authority, and Mr Navalny is now Mr Putin's most prominent opponent. Several, including his brother Oleg, are under house arrest.

And US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was sharper in a statement: "The United States condemns the continued and harsh handling of peaceful protests by the Russian authorities". Political activist Tim Montgomerie today tweeted: "I have such admiration for the protestors in Russian Federation. #MediaFreedom must be protected".

Video footage showed protesters chanting "Putin is a thief" as they linked hands and marched on the ice in temperatures of around -13 Celsius (8.6 Fahrenheit). Police detained more than 120 people in the city, OVD-Info said. OVD-Info, a protest monitoring group said police had detained 1,009 people nationwide.

He is accused of parole violations which he says are trumped up.

On Thursday, a Moscow court rejected his appeal to be released, and another hearing next week could turn his 3½-year suspended sentence into one he must serve in prison.

Its most recent video report alleging Putin was gifted a $1.35 billion property on the Black Sea coast garnered over 100 million views on YouTube becoming Navalny's most-watched investigation. On Saturday, construction magnate Arkady Rotenberg, a longtime Putin confidant and his occasional judo sparring partner, claimed that he himself owned the property.
