The reported detentions came a day after Navalny was released from a Moscow detention center - having served 25 days under administrative arrest on charges that he violated a law against organizing public meetings. He was quoted as saying that he had missed his wife's cooking.

Authorities on July 6 raided Navalny's Moscow headquarters where they seized computers, leaflets, and copies of the first edition of a newspaper that was to be distributed on July 8. Supporters of opposition figure Aleksey Navalny were campaigning in the city.

Police also briefly detained the coordinator of Navalny's office in the city of Perm late on July 6 - releasing him the next day and seizing campaign materials from his auto. Twenty more of Navalny's backers were arrested in other Russian cities, according to OVD-Info, an NGO.

Mr. Navalny, 41, was released Friday almost a month after a Moscow court convicted him of illegally planning a slew of anti-Kremlin protests that peppered Russian Federation on June 12 and resulted in police detaining over 1,000 protesters from St. Petersburg to Siberia. Mr. Navalny subsequently said he would make a statement later in the day. "I am very happy to be back at the office", he said.

"I suppose we can hold dialogue, especially at the level of president or government, with people who are suggesting a constructive agenda even of a critical manner", Putin said.

"But, if it's only about attracting attention to yourself than it's not worth the dialogue", Putin added.
