Anti-war Russian candidate blocked from running against Putin in election

A bearded, bespectacled, balding man in a blazer and collared shirt holds his arms out while speaking before a bank of microphones. A few other people, men and women, are shown behind him.

Russia’s main election authority on Thursday refused to allow a politician opposing Moscow’s military action in Ukraine on the ballot for next month’s presidential election.
