Navalny charged with financial fraud

The Moscow City Court in Lefortovo District charged on Thursday Russian opposition politician Alexey Navalny with four new counts of fraud.

The institution's representative told TASS that the investigation found Navalny had stolen about 350 million rubles given to his organization Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) as donations. The politician was also charged with contempt of court due to his allegedly disrespectful behavior towards judge Vera Akimova.

More recently, the imprisoned opposition leader was charged with creating an alleged extremist group, the FBK, which the Russian Justice Ministry previously identified as a foreign agent.
