Alexei Navalny is in bare feet, dressed in blue jeans and a checkered shirt, as he opens the door to his apartment in a drab Soviet-era block.
 he wears a monitoring bracelet on his ankle and is not allowed to step over the threshold of his own home — under house arrest in the small apartment he shares with his wife and two children.
Even in confinement, Navalny vowed in an interview with The Associated Press to continue fighting President Vladimir Putin's regime: "The opposition has to be a moral one," Navalny said, "calling the bad things bad,"
Following violent street protests in neighboring Ukraine, Putin launched a fierce attack against the Russian opposition this year, barring key opponents from running in local elections and putting Navalny and several of his allies under investigation or driving them into exile.
Navalny told The AP that house arrest is a clever Kremlin tactic that keeps him out of public view — while also preventing him from becoming a political martyr in a harsh Russian prison.
Navalny, along with his brother Oleg, is on trial for allegedly defrauding a French cosmetics company in a criminal case in which no injured party has stepped forward.
Navalny said the main obstacle to political change in Russia is neither Putin nor persecution of his opponents but rather a lack of confidence among ordinary Russians themselves.
Navalny spent part of the interview standing — a sign of just how tired he is of sitting — and he credited a treadmill in the living room for keeping him fit.
