Navalny pelted with eggs at Novosibirsk rally
Navalny rallied against housing and public utilities rates increase.
An unknown person pelted Anti-corruption Foundation Head Aleksey Navalny with eggs during a rally against housing and public utilities rates increase. Navalny got hit by several eggs, according to the Interfax News Agency. The police arrested the perpetrator.
It is worth mentioning that about 2,500 people attended the rally. Activists’ main demand is for a governor’s order to increase the Novosibirsk rates 15% to be canceled. The Russian government set housing and public utilities rates at only 4%.
Yet another scandal involving Boris Dubrovsky is looming in the Chelyabinsk region. The Governor is determined to resettle Uraim and Severny Klyuch villages against the will of their residents. Kolyma Governor Sergei Nosov suggested Dubrovsky to drive the people into bright future with iron hands. In fact, the future is bright mostly for Nosov and Dubrovsky – not for the resettled villagers.
