 Russian investigators said on Saturday that had opened a criminal investigation into the alleged laundering of 1 billion roubles (12.6 million pounds) by an anti-corruption foundation set up by jailed opposition politician Alexei Navalny.

Russia’s Investigative Committee made the announcement in a statement while an opposition protest organised by Navalny’s allies was taking place in Moscow.
