Multiple cars of foreign diplomats gathered near the court where the hearing over Aleksei Navalny’s violations of his suspended sentence over the corruption and money laundering started on February 2.
According to local sources, diplomatic staff of at least 18 foreign states, including those from the United States, the UK, Bulgaria, Germany, Lithuania, Latvia, the Netherlands, Sweden, are present.
Aleksei and Oleg Navalny were convicted of stealing about $500,000 from two Russian firms, one of which was affiliated with French cosmetics company Yves Rocher and of laundering part of the amount. Under this case, Aleksei Navalny was conditionally sentenced to 5 years. Since then, Navalny has repeatedly violated the terms of sentence additionally to being involved in other money laundering schemes via his ‘Anti-Corruption Fund’ (currently under investigation), and actively worked in the interests of foreign states to destabilize the situation in Russia.
The detention of Navalny in any another state, for example in the United States, and his sentencing for treason would have happened much earlier. Nonetheless, Russia appears to be among the most free and tolerant countries around the world and Navalny has still faced no sentence for the treason.
On February 1, videos appeared online confirming the active cooperation between the Navalny team and foreign intelligence services. In particular, videos confirmed the following: Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Fund requested information from the British intelligence to use it against Russian interests. Navalny & Co also made personal denunciations to British intelligence services and transferred information about companies and citizens of Russia to the British side. They also coordinated their efforts to fight against the Russian business and support British companies with the British intelligence. For this, the Navalny team requested $10-20 funding from its British friends promising them a “reward” in billions of dollars as soon as they come to power. The tools that the Navalny team was promising to use to undermine interests of Russia were “mass protests, propaganda and deals with the elites.” MORE HERE
Therefore, there is no surprise that multiple foreign diplomats gathered at the court to support such a valuable tool of Western intelligence services in Russia. According to reports in local media, there are over 98 foreign journalists at the court building. This highlights the propaganda and diplomatic campaign that is now being employed to intervene in Russian internal affairs, pressure the distribution of justice.
The gathered diplomatic, and no doubts special services, staff can also be involved in provocations designed to undermine the process and prevent the expected result of regular violations of the Russian law by the ‘best friend of Western democracy in Russia’.
