You're reading: Russian opposition leaders questioned after rally

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian opposition leaders say they have been questioned again by investigators a day after they helped organize the largest protest since Vladimir Putin's return to the presidency.

Anti-corruption whistleblower Alexei Navalny and leftist leader Sergei Udaltsov tweeted on June 13 that they have been summoned for questioning to Russia’s Investigative Committee for the second day in a row over a May rally in which protesters clashed with riot police.

Tens of thousands marched peacefully on June 12 in Moscow despite heavy police presence and a repressive new bill that introduced heavy penalties for taking part in unauthorized rallies.

On June 11, police searched top opposition activists’ apartments, carting away computers, safes, cellphones and other personal items.
