Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny said that he will eliminate “the Fund of struggle against corruption”. About it it is spoken on a site of opposition.
“We do have to say that the nonprofit organization “Fund of struggle against corruption”, which I founded nine years ago, came to an end, because we have it just taken away,” he said.
According to Navalny, the decision was taken because of a claim from the company “schoolboy”, which is associated with businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin. In October 2019, the court ordered Navalny, the lawyer of FBK Love Sable and FBK myself to pay almost 88 million (33.9 million UAH) at the suit of the power plant, which caters to the capital’s schools and kindergartens.
The politician noted that this amount is too big and he will not even try to collect it. Due to the inability to pay claims, according to Navalny, he will take the organization, and its Bank account.
“We will move on to another legal entity, and let [Russian President Vladimir] Putin Prigogine choke it. But the most important value you – we need to carry with you. Why we don’t listen, no we are not not specifies can affect us? Yes, because we are financially independent. We need neither the oligarchs nor the state nor a foreign country. Last year 21 467 people made their donations. And most importantly, our precious, 7607 employees who have subscribed to the monthly payments. That is, registered them on our website and we automatically write off who 100, 500 who and who a thousand. And we know that whatever happens, we receive monthly about 6 million rubles and will last us for office rent, Internet and at least a portion of the salaries,” – said Navalny urged his followers to switch it to another organization.
“The Fund of struggle against corruption” – a nonprofit Foundation created by Alexey Navalny, whose main activity is the investigation, disclosure of corruption schemes and to curb corruption at the highest levels of the Russian government.
