Russian opposition Leader to President Vladimir Putin, Alexei Navalny, was ordered to serve 3½ years in prison after a court case on Tuesday. The courts ruled that he violated terms of his parole.

Navalny was arrested at the Russian border on January 17 after returning from Germany since recovering for five months where he was poisoned with a nerve agent.

He was sentenced in 2014 to a suspended 3½-year jail sentence; however, Judge Natalya Repnikova happened to reverse the penalty.

The prison term would work out to be at least 2½ years as the Simonovsky District Court judge said Navalny previously served time under house arrest.
