Navalny's inquiry into oligarch's and official's links with prostitutes sent to Kuban court

Lawyers of the Alexei Navalny's Anti-Corruption Fund (ACF) have appealed against the decision of the Ust-Labinsk District Court to block the ACF's anti-corruption investigation, telling about an influential official spending his holiday on a yacht with an oligarch and prostitutes.

According to the information voiced out by Navalny, a girl who called herself a hunter for millionaires, posted in her social network account a report about her trip on a yacht with a well-known Russian oligarch, which was also attended by one of the most influential Russian officials.

"An oligarch is touring a high-ranking official on his own yacht – it's a bribe. The oligarch pays for the whole holiday, including girls from escort agencies – this is also, you wouldn't believe, a bribe (...). A top-ranking official can't spend his time on a yacht with an oligarch and prostitutes. This is a disgrace for the whole country," Mr Navalny has stressed.

On February 9, the "Roskomnadzor" put Alexei Navalny's website on the register of banned information.

However, on February 13, Ivan Zhdanov, the head of the ACF's legal division, filed an application to appeal against the judgement of the Ust-Labinsk District Court.
