Today in Kirov a court sentenced Aleksei Navalny and Petr Ofitserov to prison terms of five and four years respectively.

The International Memorial Society and Memorial Human Rights Centre consider the verdicts to be politically motivated, without grounds and unlawful.

From today, Russia has two more political prisoners.

The verdict against Navalny and Ofitserov clearly demonstrates the repressive nature of the current regime in Russia.
