Investigators refuse to lift arrest from bank account of Yana Antonova’s mother

A mother of Krasnodar activist Yana Antonova failed to get the arrest lifted from her bank account with the money intended for an activist’s disabled son.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that in October 2019, the Yana Antonova’s house was searched in a case on money laundering at the Anti-Corruption Foundation (known as FBK)*. The seriously ill mother of the activist was questioned, and the pensioner’s bank accounts were arrested. Yana Antonova said that on November 4, 2020, the arrest was lifted from her mother’s bank accounts. However, on March 24, it was reported that the bank account of the Yana Antonova’s mother was arrested again. According to Yana Antonova, the mother’s bank accounts arrested in the FBK* case keep the money that she planned to spend on her disabled son, and now the family survive only on a small pension.

The Investigating Committee of the Russian Federation (ICRF) refused the mother of activist Yana Antonova to lift the arrest of the bank account in the FBK* case, the “Pivovarov Team” Telegram channel reported on May 10. “Neither Yana nor her seventy-year-old mother worked either at the FBK* or at Navalny’s** offices, but investigators don’t care at all,” the report says.

* Alexei Navalny is an organizer of the Anti-Corruption Foundation (known as FBK), which is included by the Russian Ministry of Justice (MoJ) in the register of NCOs performing the functions of a foreign agent. The organization was also recognized by court as extremist and banned in Russia. Navalny’s offices were recognized as extremist organizations, and their activities were terminated by a court decision. On January 25, the “Rosfinmonitoring” (Russian Federal Service for Financial Monitoring) included Alexei Navalny to the register of extremists and terrorists.
