In Southern Russia, Navalny's activists report searches and arrests of banking accounts

Today, in Volgograd, investigators have summoned at least two Navalny's supporters for interrogation. Activists from Rostov-on-Don and Krasnodar reported that their personal banking accounts were frozen.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today, searches at offices and homes of employees of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (ACF) and Navalny's offices have been started in 39 cities of Russia, including Krasnodar, Rostov-on-Don, Stavropol, and Volgograd. The searches have been launched as a part of the case on "money laundering" at the Anti-Corruption Foundation, notes Leonid Volkov, a Navalny's associate.

Marina Tsevasheva, the former coordinator of the Navalny's office in Volgograd, was brought for an interrogation to the Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) after a search had been conducted at her house. "The interrogation was all about the same fabricated case on money laundering involving ACF," Marina Tsevasheva told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent. The activist added that she was released after the interrogation.

After the search at the Navalny's office in Volgograd, law enforcers took activist Yevgeny Kochegin away with them for interrogation, reported his advocate Ilya Pavlenko. "During the search, law enforcers seized the office's symbols, including posters and stickers. They didn't seize any office equipment," Ilya Pavlenko informed the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.

The Navalny's supporters also reported that their banking accounts were arrested.
