Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, who was arrested on his return to Russia last weekend, released an investigation Tuesday into a lavish Black Sea property he claimed is owned by President Vladimir Putin : worldnews

The 44-year-old anti-graft activist says Putin ordered the poisoning, a claim the Kremlin has repeatedly denied.

On February 2, a court will consider converting a three-year and six-month suspended sentence, given to Navalny in 2014 for fraud, to prison.

The Kremlin opponent called on his supporters on Monday to take to the streets in response to his arrest. His allies were planning rallies in Moscow and cities across the country on Saturday.

The new investigation, which ends with a call on Russians to rise up against the authorities, echoes a 2017 YouTube video in which Navalny accused then-Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev of controlling a luxury real estate empire.

This investigation sparked large-scale protests by the opposition
