Navalny found guilty on fraud charges

The Moscow City Court in Lefortovo District found Alexey Navalny guilty on Tuesday in a new fraud case.

According to Judge Margarita Kotova, while reading out the verdict, "Navalny committed fraud - the theft of property by an organized group." The charges for which Navalny is being prosecuted could significantly extend his prison sentence.

Last month, the court's representative told TASS that Navalny had stolen some 350 million rubles given to his organization Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) as donations.
