Three employees of Navalny’s office detained in Krasnodar
The police detained Anastasia Panchenko, a coordinator of the Alexei Navalny’s office in Krasnodar, and two office employees on the outskirts of the city, as they drove to Gelendzhik to prepare a video report.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on March 31, the court recognized photos from the “Love Is Stronger Than Fear” action with kissing girls posted on Instagram as the propaganda of non-traditional sexual relations among teenagers and fined Anastasia Panchenko, the coordinator of the Alexei Navalny’s office in Krasnodar, 50,000 roubles.
On the outskirts of Krasnodar, the police detained three employees of the Alexei Navalny’s office in Krasnodar, including office coordinator Anastasia Panchenko, her deputy Sofya Pilyukova, and SMM editor Alexei Korabelnikov. Activists of the Alexei Navalny’s Krasnodar office were travelling to Gelendzhik to prepare a video report. “Maybe they wanted to disrupt our action,” said the coordinator of the Alexei Navalny’s office in Krasnodar as quoted by the “Mediazona”.
Anastasia Panchenko noted that Police Captain Golubev, who had earlier detained her, also took part in their detention. “Vasily Golubev said that we called on people for registration on the website ‘Freedom to Navalny!’. It turns out that this is a crime!” the activist wrote in her Telegram channel.
