Navalny will return to prison to serve a sentence handed down in 2014 for embezzlement

A prominent Russian opposition figure, Alexei Navalny, lost an appeal against a court ruling issued against him for violating the terms of temporary release after being sentenced in a suspended case.

Earlier this month, a Russian court sentenced Navalny to three and a half years in prison due to a previous ruling issued against him in 2014, after he was found guilty of violating his conditional release. The period he spent under house arrest in that year will be deducted when the judgment was issued.

Authorities arrested Navalny last month after he returned to Russia from Germany, where he was being treated for a deadly nerve gas attack.

The Russian dissident blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin for the attack and said the charges against him were fabricated.
