Jailed Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny Sunday called for a protest vote against the Vladimir Putin-aligned United Russia party on Sunday, the last day of voting in the country’s three-day parliamentary elections.

In a post to Instagram, Navalny urged people to vote for other contenders and turn to the names recommended in a smartphone app his team has launched and which the Kremlin tried to block. EFE
