In Krasnodar, Alexei Navalny's office reports attack of President Putin's supporters

On July 4, the Alexei Navalny's office in Krasnodar was smashed as a result of an attack by members of the community who called themselves "Putin's Brigades". The activists filed a complaint to the police.

The Alexei Navalny's office in Krasnodar reported about the attack on his page in Twitter on July 4.

"We were again visited by the 'Putin's Brigades'. We are counting the damage and talking to the police... There was no discussion... Right from the threshold, members of the ''Putin's Brigades' began to stick stickers inside the office, and then they used force against volunteers of the office," state the reports.

The above reports were accompanied by a video showing the moment when the Alexei Navalny's office was visited by a crowd of people, most of whom were elderly people wearing T-shirts with the inscription reading: "Putin's Brigades". It can be seen on the video how they are tearing the poster off the wall and destroying it, shouting something, raising their hands, and pushing a young man who tried to shoot the incident on video.

The Alexei Navalny's supporters are going to seek an institution of a criminal case on the fact of the incident which took place on July 4, reports Leonid Volkov, the chief of the Alexei Navalny's election office.
