Navalny announces all-Russia pension reform protest
Novosibirsk, Belgorod, Krasnoyarsk, Krasnodar, Tomsk, Murmansk, Novokuznetsk and other cities and towns are going to oppose the new reform.
Alexey Navalny announced protest actions against the pension reform. According to him, the rallies will be held on July 1 across Russia; 20 cities have submitted applications for participation.
"Let's be honest here: the increased retirement age Putin and Medvedev initiated is simply a crime, a robbery of a few dozens of millions under the guise of "an overdue reform." We will be protesting against this whatever it takes, and we call on you to join us", Navalny posted on Instagram.
According to him, the cities that are not hosting the World Cup and therefore have the standard procedure for filing notices have done so. Novosibirsk, Belgorod, Krasnoyarsk, Krasnodar, Tomsk, Murmansk, Novokuznetsk and other cities and towns are going to oppose the new reform.
"This is a nationwide and countrywide protest. We encourage everyone to join the rally against the increased retirement age regardless of your political views and preferences. We do not care who you voted for yesterday. Take to the street now, or else you may not live to see your retirement benefits tomorrow, " Navalny wrote.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
