Russia Cracks Down On Opposition, Bans Parties Linked To Navalny On Basis Of ‘Extremism’
A Moscow court banned groups affiliated with Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny Wednesday, the latest example of the Kremlin’s crackdown on political dissent.
The ban classifies groups linked to Navalny as extremist and prevents them from participating in elections, Reuters reports. The court’s decision stemmed from a case brought by Moscow’s top prosecutor, who argued Navalny was attempting to use his political network to incite a revolution with U.S. backing, an allegation Navalny has denied.
