Moscow's Tverskoy District Court convicted Navalny on Tuesday on charges of organizing an unauthorized rally and ordered him jailed for 30 days.

Initial hearings in the case were postponed last week in order to field witness testimonies from police officers.

May 5, in more than 80 cities of Russian Federation held rallies in connection with the fourth inauguration of President Putin with the slogan "He's not our king".

The anti-corruption campaigner, who has become Putin's most visible political foe, already has served several weeks-long jail terms for organizing other protests.

Putin, 65, won re-election overwhelmingly in March, extending his grip over Russian Federation for six more years - a tenure of 24 years that would make him Moscow's longest-serving leader since Soviet dictator Josef Stalin.

Navalny had previously been detained in January after joining a rally calling for a boycott of the presidential election.

The court is also expected rule in a second administrative case in which Navalny is accused of refusing to comply with police.

"I consider the detention was illegal, my rights were violated", Navalny said in court, arguing he had a constitutional right to hold a protest. He could face up to 15 days in jail for that administrative violation.
