>> Putin's most vocal critic says the Russian President's government has finally degenerated. Opposition leader, Alexei Navalny, was released from prison on Sunday again. This time, he'd spent 20 days in jail on charges of staging an illegal protest.>>
> Speaking to press gathered outside, Navalny criticized the country's recent failures in foreign intelligence and in the space industry.
Moscow's been forced to deny that Russian agents tried to kill former Russian spy, Sergei Skripal, in the UK and hack numerous organizations around the world. And last week, astronauts on a Russian rocket were forced to make a dramatic emergency landing on their way to the International Space Station.
Navalny's arrest came almost immediately after finishing a previous incarceration. That was a 30-day stint for planning an unauthorized demonstration back in January. His supporters claim the detention was meant to sideline him at a time of growing discontent over unpopular government reforms, but Navalny stated that his frequent arrests are no deterrent.
