Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny, wearing a T-shirt reading "Navalny's Brother" speaks to supporters and the media at the Yaroslavsky railway terminal before a departure to the city of Kirov where a court is set to announce a verdict in his case on Thursday, in Moscow, Wednesday, July 17, 2013. Alexei Navalny's energy and charisma propelled him from a lonely role blogging about corruption to wide renown as Russia's leading opposition activist. His projects, including a campaign to run for Moscow mayor, have attracted hordes of volunteers and fundraisers. Now comes a day that looms large for Navalny and the opposition: A court hands down its verdict Thursday in an embezzlement case that could send him to prison for six years.
