Police raiding Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation office
Police came to the Anti-Corruption Fund's office, from where the unauthorized rally against corruption was being broadcasted on the Youtube channel Navalny Live.
According to RBC, this was reported live by member of the Partiya Progressa's ('Party of Progress') Central Council Leonid Volkov. He noted that police officers were standing at the door of the office, where the Anti-Corruption Foundation's lawyer had already been summoned. Some time after the police arrival, an officer came into the office with a dog. The people inside were told that it was a Cynologist with a service dog looking for an explosive device in the building.
Earlier, 500 people were evacuated from the Omega-Plaza business center on 19 Leninskaya Sloboda, where the office of Anti-Corruption Foundation is located. The evacuation was carried out "in connection with the threat of an explosion."
Let us recall that Alexey Navalny was detained about the same time in the center of Moscow near the Mayakovskaya metro station during an anti-corruption procession.
