Russia’s Police Carry Out Nationwide Mass Searches at the Homes of Navalny’s Bots

The history of Russian NGOs clearly demonstrates that the louder “public activists” shout about some crime committed by the authorities, the more likely that they themselves have committed this crime.

The “Anti-Corruption Foundation” of the main fighter “for all good” Aleksey Navalny became the subject of a criminal case concerning the laundering of one billion rubles.

As the head of the human rights “Agora” group, Pavel Chikov, reported on his Telegram channel, mass searches started at the homes of staff of Navalny’s foundation and at the organisation’s headquarters.

According to him, representatives of law enforcement are carrying out investigative actions in 31 Russian cities. In particular, searches are taking place in Balakovo, Belgorod, Vladivostok, Voronezh, Ekaterinburg, Ivanovo, Izhevsk, Irkutsk, Kazan, Kemerovo, Krasnodar, Krasnoyarsk, Kurgan, Lipetsk, Murmansk, Nizhny Novgorod, Novosibirsk, Penza, Perm, Omsk, Orenburg, St. Petersburg, Saratov, Stavropol, Tambov, Tomsk, Tyumen, Khabarovsk, Cheboksary, Chelyabinsk, and Yaroslavl.

Chikov claims that security officers are simultaneously carrying out 5-7 searches in each of the cities.

The human rights activist also noted that the decree of the Basmanny Court of the city of Moscow from September 4th 2019 issued in connection with the legalisation by the foundation of one billion rubles became the reason for such a number of investigative actions being carried out nationwide.
