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%.
Unnecessary witness. Death of penitentiary service lieutenant colonel Viktor Shevchenko: Suicide or murder?
Two events occurred in close succession in the Irkutsk region. On February 11, 2018, it became known that major general Anatoly Kilanov, Head of the Regional Directorate of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, was removed from office. The main suspect in an anti-corruption inquest carried out in late 2017, Kilanov was accused of extorting ‘levies’ from his subordinates. On February 12, 2018, Viktor Shevchenko, his deputy for service support, was found hanged. The investigation is currently explaining this suicide by a family quarrel. Has the lieutenant colonel really taken his own life? Or was it a disguised murder? And if so, who could be interested in it?
