Navalny jailed: a clear message from the Kremlin?

Russia's leading dissident was jailed today for stealing timber. Alexei Navalny wasn't surprised by the verdict, nor the 5-year jail term he received. Navalny's parting words to supporters were "don't do nothing", and his supporters have vowed to continue the fight. Laura Baines and her panel discuss whether this is yet another sign that the Kremlin will not tolerate disloyalty and dissent.
