Russian Opposition Leader Receives Third Jail Sentence Of The Year

Russian Foreign Ministry

Authorities said he had no permission to hold the event and he was sentenced to serve 20 days in jail.

Navalny's supporters claim he was detained for attempting to organize a rally Friday in a city east of Moscow.

The ruling would keep him away from a major rally this weekend. "This is a gift for Putin's birthday", said opponent after statement of judgment, while President Vladimir Putin celebrates his 65 years on Saturday.

Huntsman, a businessman, veteran diplomat and former presidential candidate, came to Russian Federation at a tense time, when the White House-Kremlin diplomatic relations are at a dangerously low ebb.

A close associate, Leonid Volkov, was also jailed for 20 days and threatened to go on hunger strike.

Palestinian cabinet convenes in Gaza in move to reconcile with Hamas
Abbas, too, demands that Hamas disarm, saying he "won't accept the reproduction of the Hezbollah experience in Lebanon ". Egyptian intelligence chief Khaled Fawzy arrived in Gaza on Tuesday to deliver a boost of support.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov made the comments to reporters in a conference call ahead of Huntsman presenting his diplomatic credentials to President Vladimir Putin later on Tuesday.

A court sentenced him to 20 days in jail on Monday, a term which means he will miss a campaign rally planned in Putin's hometown of St Petersburg on October 7 - the Russian leader's birthday.

In another Moscow courthouse, a judge is expected to hand down a ruling later Monday in the case of Navalny's campaign chief, Leonid Volkov, who faces similar charges.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement that "despite our warnings, USA authorities have not listened to the voice of reason and did not give up on their illegal intentions". It was widely seen as a politically ordered judgment.
