Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has raised the stakes in his bid to become the nation’s president next year, putting him on course for a final showdown with his arch-rival, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

Navalny on March 26 and June 12 organized the largest anti-corruption protests in Russia since the mass demonstrations against rigged parliamentary and presidential elections in 2011 to 2012.

It is still unclear whether the Kremlin will register Navalny as a presidential candidate. Putin will be tempted to remove his strongest competitor from the race, but may face even larger protests if Navalny is not allowed to run.
