Moscow police will prevent any illegal protests in the city, a municipal official said Tuesday after opposition leader Alexei Navalny called on supporters to take to streets over a guilty verdict that sentenced his brother to prison.

"According to the law, all unsanctioned actions will be prevented by the security forces. There is no other alternative," the capital's security department head Alexei Mayorov told Interfax news agency.
