it Seems clear that the appeal made by Alexei Navalni, the main opponent of the Kremlin, in the elections to local last Sunday in Russia to vote for any candidate that is not from the party of the president Vladimir Putin has had a certain detrimental effect to the power.
And reprisals have not been made wait. Police officers carried out from today in the morning more than a hundred and a half of records in 40 Russian cities on the premises of the organization of Navalni and in the homes of its employees and activists. "It's the largest police operation in the history of modern Russia", today said the opposition leader in a message published on his blog.
In this massive operation involved "hundreds of agents", has declared to the radio Echo of Moscow, Leonid Vólkov , member of the board of the Foundation for the Struggle against Corruption (FBK in its Russian acronym), structure created by Navalni and main instrument of their political activity and unmasking of the fraudulent dealings of some members of the Government and of the environment of Putin.
And that is the Committee of Instruction (SK), a body of judicial self-contained but linked before the Attorney-General, investigates the alleged laundering of billion rubles (about 13.6 million euros on the part of the FBK that directs Navalni. According to the Committee Statement, "between January 2016 and December 2018 people linked to the Foundation received the equivalent of a thousand million rubles in foreign currency knowing that it had been illegally obtained". According to Vólkov, the accusations of the SK "are absurd and intended to be a new case rigged".
The records are being carried out with extreme hardness, claimed this morning Yuri Prudnikov , responsible for the headquarters of the party of Navalni in Chelyabinsk (Urals). Without finding the slightest resistance, the agents enter breaking the door, forcing those present to lie on the ground, and taking after documents and computers. The organization of defense of Human Rights, "Agora," she says in a recent report that these records "are made with a clear intention and intimidating".
As the organizers of big protests against Putin in 2011 and 2012, Navalni, 43 years old, became the main opposition leader. Against him have been initiated a number of causes of economic crimes and has served multiple prison sentences less by demonstrations, the last 30 days. He got out of jail on the 23rd of August after being the engine of the demonstrations organized since July by the exclusion of opposition candidates to the elections of the 8th of September and which resulted in close to 3,000 detainees, insane loads of riot police and several sentences of between three and five years in jail on protesters who allegedly acted violently against the Police.are Not the first records
this is Not the first time that are made to records in the local linked to the organization of Navalni. During the month of August there were several, including the headquarters of Moscow , and even on the eve of elections Sunday, but not as massive as those of today.
In July, being in the dungeons serving his last sentence, the opponent number one of Russia, had to be hospitalized because of a "dermatitis" which he believes was caused by a toxic substance that someone managed it in the cell.
in the face Of the recent elections, Navalni launched the so-called "vote smart", consisting of vote in each constituency the candidate, is the party that is, more likely according to the polls to beat the representative of United Russia, the party of the Kremlin. In Moscow at least it worked, since the government formation, despite maintaining the absolute majority, has lost 12 councillors with respect to the previous elections.
The communists, who have been the most benefited from the diversion of the vote proposed by Navalni, you have shown your gratitude. "We've all tried to get the most out of the current situation to win, and that's why I want to give thanks to all, including Navalni," he said on Wednesday Valeri Rashkin , head of the communists of Moscow.Updated Date: 13 September 2019, 09:01
