Alexei Navalny: Russian politician and anti-corruption activist
Alexei Anatolievich Navalny is a Russian opposition politician, jurist and anti-corruption activist. He is frequently described by western media as Russia's opposition leader. He came to international prominence by organizing demonstrations, and running for office, to advocate reforms against corruption in Russia, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Putin's government. Navalny has been described as "the man Vladimir Putin fears most" by The Wall Street Journal. Putin is said to avoid directly referring to Navalny by name.
