Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny has been put under house arrest as he waits for his trial. It had been expected he would be sent to jail beforehand.

Navalny and his brother Oleg are accused of defrauding French cosmetics company Yves Rocher. Yves Rocher has sent a letter to investigators saying the company suffered no damage in the deal.

Navalny is already serving a suspended sentence for another embezzlement conviction.
