Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has been formally barred from competing in next year's presidential election.
 
The Central Electoral Commission has said Navalny was ineligible because of a corruption conviction which he says is politically motivated.
 
He has urged his supporters to boycott the March vote.
 
Navalny, 41, was widely regarded as the only candidate with a chance of challenging President Vladimir Putin.
 
Known for his anti-corruption campaign and protests against Putin, Navalny was given a 5-year suspended sentence in a retrial earlier this year on embezzlement charges.
