Navalny and the Anti-Corruption Foundation Decided to File a Lawsuit Against the Russian President

Navalny and the Anti-Corruption Foundation decided to file a lawsuit against the Russian President.

Alexey Navalny and the Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) decided to sue President Vladimir Putin over a criminal money-laundering case. Oppositionists accuse Putin of evading  constitutional duties to protect the rights of the population.

The Anti-Corruption Foundation, its founder Alexei Navalny and 13 other fund employees decided to file a lawsuit against Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Tverskoy Court of Moscow. This was reported by Navalny on his website. He gave a link to the text of the statement of the claim. There is no information about the FBK lawsuit in the database of the Tverskoy court. From the document cited by Navalny, it follows that the lawsuit was filed due to a criminal case on money laundering, which in August 2019 was initiated by the Investigative Committee of Russia against FBK employees. In the framework of this case, searches were carried out, documents and money accounts were seized.

Navalny believes that Putin is  to blame for all this "lawlessness", andexplains that the Russian president, being the guarantor of the Constitution, “does not respond and take measures to stop gross and systematic violations of constitutional rights   that are taking place in the “FBK case” dozens of times a day for a very long time."

In the statement of the claim, he says that Putin should be obligated “to take measures to protect the constitutional rights of administrative plaintiffs,” within the limits of the authority granted to him.

A criminal case against money laundering at FBK was opened in August 2019. The Investigative Committee said that in the fund in 2016-2018 money was laundered for a total of about 1 billion rubles. Later, the Investigative Committee lowered its valuation to 75 million rubles. Supporters of Alexei Navalny in dozens of Russian cities have already had mass searches - in August and several times in September. FBK denies the allegations.

On October 9, the Justice Ministry recognized FBK as a foreign agent. The ministry then explained that it was beacuse of the funding from the United States and Spain, which the foundation received. The FBK founder stated that the fund “never received a dime of foreign money”, and called the actions of the Ministry of Justice illegal.
