Russian opposition leader Sergei Udaltsov gestures in a courtroom in Moscow, Russia, Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013. Udaltsov, a top Russian opposition figure, has been placed under house arrest for two months, a move that also bans him from using most forms of communication, including the Internet, telephone and mail. A Moscow court imposed the restrictions Saturday on Udaltsov who faces charges in connection with a protest in 2011 that ended in clashes with police and for allegedly plotting to conduct mass disorder which according to prosecutors was aimed at overthrowing the government.
