Russia's Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) on Tuesday demanded that jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's brother Oleg be given a real prison sentence in place of a one-year suspended sentence handed to him last year, Russian news agencies reported.

A Russian court gave Oleg Navalny a one-year suspended sentence last August for inciting people to break COVID-19 restrictions. He had been detained in January 2021 as part of a broad crackdown on his brother's allies.
