MOSCOW, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - Chairman of the Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov said he will request the documents proving that the July 18-19 rallies by anti-corruption blogger Alexei Navalny’s supporters had been coordinated.
“I’m very curious of the story with the rallies in Navalny’s support that had been coordinated at the Moscow Mayor’s Office [for July 18] and for today at Tverskoy Boulevard from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Moscow time,” Fedotov said.
“I want to look at these documents. Till now I’ve heard the words by head of the Moscow regional security department Alexei Mayorov. I want to make sure that such rallies were coordinated,” Fedotov said, adding that he would direct a request to the Moscow Mayor’s Office.
Head of Navalny’s electoral headquarters, Leonid Volkov, told Itar-Tass he knew nothing whether the rallies in support of Navalny were authorized.
