Supporter of Navalny treats his exclusion from Cossack Army as unjustified

The Cossack Evgeny Panchuk, who had supported Navalny and was excluded from the registry of the Ekaterinodar District Cossack Society, decided to become a member of another Cossack Society. Panchuk should not support Navalny on behalf of all the Cossacks, his opponents believe.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that Panchuk had supported Navalny and criticized President Vladimir Putin. He also said that Cossacks were asked to block the opening of Navalny's office in Krasnodar on April 8.

"The fact that we had been ordered to go and block Navalny’s office is a complete lie," says the statement of the Cossacks of the Ekaterinodar Cossack Society of the Ekaterinodar Division of the Kuban Cossack Army (KCA).

A source from one of Cossack Societies of Krasnodar has confirmed that the issue of Panchuk’s exclusion was discussed by Cossacks on the initiative of the ataman, who was "ordered to deal with Panchuk."

Let us note here that in 2014 in Sochi, members of the “Pussy Riot” group stated that they had been attacked by Cossacks. The Cossack Grigory Uchkurov stood in support of the “Pussy Riot”, after which he was excluded from the KCA.
