Many condemned the court ruling and lauded Navalny for his bravery and the gesture for his wife. Take a look at some of the reactions here:

A Moscow court sentenced Navalny to two years and eight months in a prison colony for violating parole from a 2014 sentence for embezzlement in a case which he said was politically motivated.

The 44-year-old’s original 3 1/2-year sentence was reduced by the 10 months he spent under house arrest in the case.

He was arrested upon returning to Russia in January after surviving a suspected assassination attempt back in August 2020 that he and his allies blamed on Putin’s security services.

Post the verdict, thousands of people joined in on unsanctioned protests across the country with more than 5000 people detained, according to OVD-Info, a group tracking political arrests.
