Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny talks to his brother and co-defendant Oleg before a court hearing in Moscow

Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny (R) talks to his brother and co-defendant Oleg before a court hearing in Moscow December 19, 2014. A Moscow court on Friday extended a term of house arrest for Kremlin critic Navalny on trial for stealing more than 30 million roubles ($497,851), charges he dismisses as part of a campaign by President Vladimir Putin to stifle dissent. Navalny and his brother, who is also on trial, are accused of stealing from two firms, including an affiliate of the French cosmetics company Yves Rocher. They deny any wrongdoing.
