He rose to prominence during the mass demonstrations against alleged vote fraud, and still is concidered to be one of the most active and radical leaders of the Russian opposition movement. Udaltsov is currently charged in a separate case with plotting mass disorder and faces up to ten years behind bars if convicted.
