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%.
The Kuybyshevsky District Court of St. Petersburg is to consider the third case against Barsukov (Kumarin), as part of which he is charged with criminal community creation. Previously, the 'night governor of St. Petersburg' had been held in the Moscow's Matrosskaya Tishina pre-trial detention center. It is also reported that Barsukov is to be questioned in the case of Galina Starovoytova's murder.
