Moscow – A court in the Russian capital has granted government prosecutors’ their wish, formally designating the anti-corruption and political movement led by jailed Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny an extremist entity.
Wednesday’s decision from the court in Moscow neuters the opposition, and it will force Navalny’s movement underground.
Navalny supporters also risk serious repercussions, as donating to an extremist organization or even reposting content from one online, can all bring prison sentences.
