Russian Opposition Activist Cleared of Tax Evasion Charges

Russian socialite-turned-opposition activist Ksenia Sobchak was returned the money that had been confiscated during the probe on suspicion of tax evasion.

      Cash amounting to approximately $2 million in dollars, euro and rubles, was found in June at Sobchak’s Moscow home during a police raid. The raid was held in several opposition activists' houses right before another protest rally.

      Russia's Investigative Committee seized the money, suggesting it might be used to finance public disorder in the country.

      Sobchak denied the allegations and demanded her money back several times, though all her requests were rejected by a succession of Moscow courts.

      The subsequent investigation uncovered no tax evasion, the Investigative Committee said.

      Ksenia Sobchak, a TV-star, a socialite and a daughter of the former St. Petersburg's governor, surprised the public when she became a vocal opposition supporter at the December's protest rallies against unfair parliamentary elections. She is still one of the most noticeable and active persons in Russia's opposition movement.
