Russia opposition says investigators raiding offices across country

  • The raids started at 6 a.m. and are taking place in at least 30 addresses

MOSCOW: Russia’s opposition said on Tuesday that investigators had launched raids on its offices across the country, in the latest move to put pressure on government critics.

“They started at 6 a.m. and are taking place in at least 30 addresses,” opposition leader Alexei Navalny said on Twitter, less than a week after authorities declared his Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) a “foreign agent.”

“The ‘law enforcement system of Russia’ is using all of its efforts to protect corrupt officials and bribe takers.”
