Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been convicted of fraud and contempt of court and sentenced to nine years in a maximum security prison.

A judge also ruled Tuesday that Navalny would have to pay a fine of 1.2 million rubles (about $11,500).

Navalny is currently serving another prison sentence of 2 1/2 years in a prison colony east of Moscow.

His associates have said the new trial was intended to keep Navalny, Russian leader Vladimir Putin’s longtime foe, behind bars for as long as possible. Navalny has rejected the charges as bogus.
