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.

According to the most recent prognosis, Tuleev has to testify as a witness in the ‘Inskoy Pit case’ and potentially faces jail.
According to the documents that were at the disposal of the editorial board, Nikolai Germashev handed resignation himself. In the future, his name will be featured on the pages of the criminal case, insiders say.
