June 11 (Bloomberg) -- Russian police have searched the homes of Alexei Navalny, Sergei Udaltsov, Ilya Yashin and other organizers of a May 6 anti-presidential protest at Bolotnaya Square in downtown Moscow, according to a statement on the website of the Investigative Committee, a law enforcement body answerable to the president’s office.

This year has seen the biggest protests in a decade against government policies. Opposition groups plan another rally tomorrow on the Russia Day Holiday. The authorities have given permission for 50,000 people to take part in the protest.

Navalny has been questioned in connection with possible charges of inciting mass disturbances and violence against officials. The charges would carry a maximum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment.
