A Russian court on Wednesday handed a five-year suspended sentence to prominent opposition leader Alexei Navalny after finding him guilty of embezzlement Jake Fisher Jersey , a move that will complicate his plans to run for president against Vladimir Putin in 2018.

Navalny said he would appeal against the sentence and would take part in the presidential race regardless.

"We don't recognise this ruling. I have every right to take part in the election according to the constitution and I will do so," said Navalny.

The court also fined Navalny 500,000 roubles ($8,442.37)The judge at the court in the city of Kirov was still reading his verdict Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey , but it was clear from his remarks Navalny would be found guilty, the agency said.

Navalny said during a break that the new verdict repeated word for word a previous court ruling which the European Court of Human Rights found had violated his rights.

"They were too lazy to write another one. It was a demonstration that they don't give a damn about the European Court and can take the old verdict," Navalny said.

Late last year, he announced his plan to run for president in 2018 Nick Vigil Jersey , when Vladimir Putin's current term expires. Under Russian law, he would be banned from running for 10 years if convicted of a serious crime.

He says the prosecution is aimed at barring him from politics. The Kremlin denies that.

Asked if Navalny's absence from the presidential race would undermine the legitimacy of the election, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters earlier on Wednesday, "We believe any concerns about this are inappropriate."

It could provide a focus for anti-Kremlin protests Josh Malone Jersey , especially in the big urban centers where Navalny draws most of his support.

Some matches seem made in heaven. Others are made in honky tonk bars.

The match between Leon ?Kix? Broooks and Ronnie Dunn is one that country is forever grateful for. Alone, neither musician made much traction as a solo artist. Together, they become a powerhouse duo that has become one of the most successful country acts in modern history.

Both spent their youths training musically, and their young adulthood wandering from odd job to odd job. Dunn had actually wanted to become a Baptist minister Carl Lawson Jersey , even going as far as attending Abilene Christian University before he was kicked out for performing music in local bars. It seemed like both were natural born musicians.

In 1988, both men earned the notice of an Arista executive who smelled a deal. He brought them together?the lower key, more pensive Dunn and the highly animated Brooks. The chemistry couldn?t have been more perfect. They began writing and recording together, and when the label saw the results they knew they had a hit on their hands.

Brooks & Dunn released their first album in 1991. Brand New Man featured three number one singles that raced up the country charts: ?My Next Broken Heart Jordan Willis Jersey ,? ?Neon Moon? and ?Boot Scootin? Boogie.? And people?s boots did scoot, kicking off a line dancing fad that swept up country joints across the nation. The duo?s follow up album, Hard Workin? Man, appeared two years later. It followed up on the smash success of their debut Joe Mixon Jersey , scoring five singles that peaked on the country charts? Top 5, and seemed to cement the group as truly great entertainers. In 1994, they released their third record, Waitin? on Sundown John Ross Jersey , which went platinum twice. There were no doubters in the industry after that.

?Little Miss Honky Tonk? was one of their biggest hits on that record. ?I get out on the redneck side every now and thenCall up my baby she comes over and the party beginsShe?s a slick nickel, she?s right on the moneyI wouldn?t give her up for a thousand buckle bunniesI?m her big cat daddy, she?s my little miss honky tonk,? the lyrics go. Brooks & Dunn built their reputation on songwriting like this?fun and freewheeling Jessie Bates III Jersey , with plenty of ?honky tonk? slang that let?s their listeners know they?re keeping things real.

In 1996, the duo continued their hot streak by releasing Borderline, which also went double platinum and was loaded with hits. Songs like ?My Maria,? ?A Man This Lonely? and ?I Am That Man? were the top songs off that record Billy Price Jersey , and they managed to all earn heavy radio play as well.

The group?s albums would begin to lose some popularity after this, slowly but steadily increasing as the ?90s wore on and the new millennium began. But they revised their sound in 2001 and restored themselves as kings of the country charts.

It?s not much wonder that Brooks & Dunn tickets sell just as well today as they did in the mid ?90s. Find yours at http:www.stubhubbrooks and dunn tickets.


GUANGZHOU, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- World leaders, international institutions, and company representatives attending the 2nd ""Investing in Africa Forum"" are calling for innovative ways to rejuvenate economic growth, which coincides with China's ""prescription"" for the world at the recent G20 summit.
