Vladimir Putin's most vocal critic, opposition leader Alexei Navalny, has called on his thousands of supporters to join him at anti-corruption protests across Russian Federation today (12 June).
The anti-corruption activist and presidential hopeful has also called for protests in more than 200 cities across Russian Federation, which is celebrating a public holiday.
President Vladimir Putin vowed to punish people who broke the law after an estimated 60,000 people protested in March at anti-corruption rallies organised by Navalny that were mostly unsanctioned in 80 cities across Russian Federation, the biggest unrest in five years.
Small protests have also been reported in cities in the Russian Far East, the BBC reports.

After the change, Moscow police warned that "any provocative actions from the protesters' side will be considered a threat to public order and will be immediately suppressed".
The Tverskaya street is blocked by trucks placed by authorities in Moscow, Russia, Monday, June 12, 2017.

For now, polls suggest Navalny, who was jailed for 15 days for disobeying a policeman at the last protest, has scant chance of unseating Putin, who enjoys high ratings.
April's green liquid attack left Navalny with permanently damaged sight. He asked to tell you that plans remain the same: "Tverskaya". "I want changes. I want to live in a modern democratic state and I want our taxes to be converted into roads, schools and hospitals, not into yachts, palaces and vineyards", he said.
