MOSCOW, Russia — Jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny urges Russians to stage daily protests against Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine, saying the country should not be a “nation of frightened cowards.”

“I am urging everyone to take to the streets and fight for peace,” he says in a statement posted on Facebook, calling on Russians not to be afraid of going to prison.

“Everything has a price and now, in the spring of 2022, we should pay that price.”
