Russian President Vladimir Putin is ready to cooperate with the opposition if it tries to strengthen the country. He said this in an interview with NBC. The TV presenter asked if the Russian president could ‘pardon’ Alexey Navalny, so that he could compete in elections. “I would like to cooperate with these people and I am ready for this. We try to make Russia a stronger, competitive, and more effective country, a country that relies on its own strengths. There are such people [who do this],” TASS reports citing the president. “Any person can be pardoned if they are worthy of it,” Putin added.
In late May, a private Sud-Aviation Gazelle helicopter has crash-landed in the Khabarovsk krai. As a result, a 72-year-old man died from heart seizure. Another passenger has got a spinal fracture, while the third one – the pilot – came out of the accident with only a minor brain concussion. Later it became known that the deceased person was an FSB colonel general, the one with spinal fracture – a former overseer of the Khabarovsk krai, while a prominent Khabarovsk businessman had piloted the helicopter. The CrimeRussia obtained some exclusive information about this strange company.
