Russia: UK Condemns Ruling of Navalny Foundation as Extremist Organisation

The UK has condemned the judgment by a Russian court today that Alexey Navalny’s anti-corruption foundation is an extremist organisation


Following a Russian court judgement that Alexey Navalny’s anti-corruption foundation is an extremist organisation, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said:

Today’s ruling that the anti-corruption foundation FBK is an extremist organisation is perverse. It is another Kafka-esque attack on those standing up against corruption and for open societies, and is a deliberate attempt to effectively outlaw genuine political opposition in Russia.
