NOVOGORSK, July 19 (Itar-Tass) - The conviction of Alexey Navalny and his subsequent release do not contradict Russian laws, Kremlin press secretary Dmitry Peskov told journalists on Friday.
"You know, if you ask (lawyer) Genrikh Padva, he will perhaps confirm that both actions were carried out in full compliance with Russian laws. There were no violations,” Peskov went on to say. He said that President Vladimir Putin did not solve that kind of issues despite the fact that he is a lawyer by education.
As for Navalny’s participation in the mayoral elections in Moscow, Peskov said that several candidates had already been registered, including Sergei Sobyanin. “It is up to the Election Commission to decide what to do with one more candidate,” Peskov said.
He refused to comment on Navalny’s chances at the forthcoming elections.
