He could face a fine and up to 20 days in jail, Yarmysh wrote on Twitter. He is due to appear in court later Monday, she added.

Mr. Navalny accused the authorities to have him sent in prison, to prevent them from manifesting on 9 September against a government proposal on pension reform when stood in the local elections.

In recent weeks, the opposition politician has called for nationwide protests against government plans to raise the retirement age in Russian Federation - a deeply unpopular reform that is fuelling resentment with the authorities and which has dented Mr Putin's popularity, our correspondent says.

More than 800 people were detained nationwide during those demonstrations.

Mr Navalny has called Mr Putin's party a place of "crooks and thieves", accused the president's system of "sucking the blood out of Russia" and vowed to destroy the "feudal state" being built.

If these gatherings remained limited to a few thousand people, as Saturday, still in Moscow, this very sensitive subject in a country where the standard of living and retirement pensions are very low, which has affected the popularity of Vladimir Putin, which eased at the end of August the reform.

He was barred from taking part in Russia's presidential election in March and served a month in prison in June after organising demonstrations ahead of Putin's fourth inauguration in May.

Navalny has been the driving force behind a recent series of anti-government rallies.

Mr Navalny has become the leading figure of the Russian opposition since massive protests in 2011 and 2012.

The elections in Primorsky Krai, also in the Far East, were cancelled following protests over vote-rigging and will be held at an unspecified time.

His spokeswoman said Navalny had been arrested nine time and had spent a total of 172 days in jail.
