Navalny's supporter in Vladikavkaz not afraid of "E" Centre

After the Vladikavkaz schoolboy wrote a comment, in which he approved the action of the oppositionist Alexei Navalny, he came within the sight of interest of Centre "E" agents. However, despite their pressure, the pupil refused to give them his phone for inspection and refused to delete his comment. The story received resonance; and Navalny called the schoolboy's comment a good slogan for a protest action.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on March 26, many cities of Russia, including the Southern and North-Caucasian Federal Districts (SFD and NCFD), held anti-corruption actions of the Navalny's supporters. The actions were accompanied by mass detentions in Volgograd, Krasnodar, Sochi, Rostov-on-Don and Makhachkala.

The pretext for the conversation of "E" Centre agents with the Vladikavkaz schoolboy was the comment he left on April 30 in one of the groups of the social network "VKontakte" under the post about the protest action, planned by the opposition in June. "Normal topic; we should go," wrote the nine-form pupil.

He said that he refused to give his phone to policemen; then, he was taken to the police station. "I took out my SIM card from the phone; blocked it with a password and took it with me. I managed even to video record a part of the conversation," he said.

At the office of the head of the station, "an educational conversation" was held with him.

"Instead of fighting corruption, policemen are reading correspondence in the ninth-grader's phone for his being against this same corruption and for normal life," Alexei Navalny has commented on the incident.
