Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been given a 20-day prison sentence for repeatedly violating a ban on organizing public meetings, BBC reports.

His supporters say he was detained to stop him taking part in presidential elections in March when Vladimir Putin is expected to seek a fourth term.

It is the third time this year that Mr Navalny has been jailed.
