Opozantul rus Alexei Navalnîi a fost condamnat iar, după ce, la sfârşitul anului trecut, a primit o pedeapsă de trei ani şi jumătate de închisoare, dar cu suspendare. Cunoscut critic al regimului condus de Vladimir Putin, Navalnîi a fost condamnat şi în anii trecuţi cu diverse acuzaţii, însă autorităţile au fost nevoite să-l elibereze după ce mii de persoane au ieşit în stradă pentru a-l sprijini.

Alexei Navalnîi a fost condamnat joi seară la 15 zile de detenţie fiindcă a încălcat condiţiile unei condamnări precedente care îi interzicea să participe la manifestaţii publice, relatează Interfax.

Opozantul rus a fost sancţionat pentru că a distribuit pliante care fac apel la organizarea unui marş la 1 martie.

Potrivit lui Navalnîi, în acea zi el a fost reţinut timp de opt ore la poliţie, apoi eliberat. „Nu am făcut decât să informez lumea despre eveniment. Toate aceste acţiuni au loc pentru ca eu să nu particip la marş”, a declarat el.   De profesie avocat, Navalnîi este activist şi un blogger foarte citit. El a devenit cunoscut atunci când a realizat o anchetă privind corupţia în Rusia şi a jucat un rol esenţial în organizarea amplelor proteste împotriva lui Putin din 2011 şi 2012.    În 2013, el a fost condamnat pentru delapidare şi condamnat la închisoare, însă a fost eliberat la numai o zi după arestare, după ce mii de persoane au ieşit pe străzile Moscovei în semn de protest. Pedeapsa i-a fost comutată la închisoare cu suspendare. În septembrie 2012, Navalnîi a candidat la funcţia de primar al Moscovei, cursă în care a fost principalul contracandidat al actualului primar, Serghei Sobianin.Imagine__14055

La sfârşitul anului trecut, Alexei Navalnîi a fost găsit vinovat pentru deturnare de fonduri condamnat la trei ani şi şase luni de închisoare cu suspendare. Şi acest proces a fost numit unul politic.

Cazul lui Navalnîi „pare a fi cel mai recent exemplu al luptei guvernului rus împotriva vocilor independente”, a declarat pentru AP Jeff Rathke, purtătorul de cuvânt al Departamentului de Stat al SUA. Navalnîi a fost acuzat, alături de fratele său, Oleg, că ar fi furat 30 de milioane de ruble (aproximativ 540.000 de dolari) de la compania franceză de cosmetice Yves Rocher, în perioada 2008-2012. Ambii au negat acuzaţiile.

Alexei Navalnîi – protestul antimaidan din Moscova a fost un eşec!

Alexei Anatolievich Navalny (Russian: Алексе́й Анато́льевич Нава́льный, Russian pronunciation: [ɐlʲɪkˈsʲej ɐnɐˈtolʲɪvʲɪtɕ nɐˈvalʲnɨj]), born 4 June 1976) is a Russian lawyer, political and financial activist,[1] and politician. Since 2009, he has gained prominence in Russia, and in the Russian and international media, as a critic of corruptionand of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has organized large-scale demonstrations promoting democracy and attacking political corruption, Putin, and Putin’s political allies; and has run for political office on the same platform. In 2012, The Wall Street Journal described him as „the man Vladimir Putin fears most.”[2]

A self-described „nationalist democrat”, Navalny is a Russian Opposition Coordination Council member and the leader of the registered Russian political party Progress Party (Russian: Партия прогресса), formerly People’s Alliance (Russian: Народный Альянс).[3][not in citation given] In September 2013 he ran in the Moscow mayoral election, supported by the RPR-PARNAS party. He came in second, with 27% of the vote, losing to incumbent mayor Sergei Sobyanin, a Putin appointee. His vote total was much higher than political analysts had expected, but Navalny and his allies insisted that the actual number was still higher, and that authorities had committed election fraud in order to prevent a runoff election from taking place.[4]

Navalny came to prominence via his blog, hosted on the website LiveJournal, which remains his primary method of communicating with the public. He has used his blog to attack Putin and his allies, to organize political demonstrations, to post documents showing Putin and his allies to be engaged in unsavory behavior, and most recently to promote his campaigns for office. He has also been active in other media: most notably, in a 2011 radio interview he described Russia’s ruling party, United Russia, as a „party of crooks and thieves„, which soon became a popular epithet.[5]

Navalny has been arrested numerous times by Russian authorities, most seriously in 2012, when federal authorities accused him of three instances of embezzlement and fraud, all of which he denied.[6] In July 2013 he was convicted of embezzlement and was sentenced to five years in a corrective labor colony.[7][8] Russia’sMemorial Human Rights Center recognized Navalny as a political prisoner.[9] Navalny was released from prison a day after sentencing.[10] The prison fine was suspended in October 2013.[11] In February 2014 Navalny and his brother were prosecuted on embezzlement charges and Navalny was placed under house arrest and restricted from communicating with anyone but his family; he was sentenced in December 2014 with another suspended prison term of 3.5 years and his brother received an actual 3.5-year prison sentence.[12]
