MOSCOW - Prominent Russian opposition leader Sergei Udaltsov, charged with plotting mass disorder in protests last year, was placed under house arrest by a Moscow court on Saturday.

The leftist was among several opposition figures charged with riots and violence against police during a protest against Russian President Vladimir Putin last May on the eve of his inauguration for a third presidential term.

The Federal Investigative Committee, which answers only to Putin, had barred Udaltsov from travelling freely but said on Friday that he was not complying with that.

The court put Udaltsov under house arrest until April 6.
