Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- The Russian judiciary has suspended the activities of organizations thought to be linked to jailed opponent Alexei Navalny.
Ivan Zhdanov, director of the Anti-Corruption Fund, which is known for its closeness to the Russian opponent, announced on his Twitter account that his activities had been suspended by the prosecution’s decision.
"They are screaming, 'we are afraid of your activities, we are afraid of your demonstrations, we are afraid of your advice on who to vote for,'" Zhdanov said, adding footage of the prosecution’s request.
Navalny's office in Moscow said via the Telegram app that they had been instructed not to work as before.
"It's not easy to fight, but in the end, we will be the winners. Because we are strong and right," the statement said.
