The criminal case on the laundering of more than 1 billion rubles ($ 15,3 million) by Alexey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) involves 112 investigators for especially important cases from different regions of Russia. This was written by one of the FBK managers, Leonid Volkov.
“This is the largest political criminal case in the history of Russia,” Volkov concluded.
About the same number of investigators worked on the Yukos case against Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the Ural publication Znak notes.
The ICR initiated the criminal case against FBK on August 3. Security forces conducted searches in more than 40 headquarters of the foundation in various regions of the Russian Federation; more than 100 accounts were arrested as part of the investigation. Some of them belong to the organization Protection of Citizens’ Rights.
The FBK claims that there was no money laundering, the money mentioned in the case was donations from individuals.
