MOSCOW, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - Moscow police have initiated criminal proceedings against a group of unknown people for sticking leaflets on the Russian State Duma building during an unsanctioned rally in support of opposition blogger Alexey Navalny, a candidate for the mayor of Moscow.

A source at the Russian Interior Ministry department for Moscow told Itar-Tass on Saturday that police were looking for a group of unknown persons who had stuck provocative leaflets on the State Duma building in the evening last Thursday.

The offenders whose identity is yet to be established are facing charges of vandalism committed by a group of persons, the police said.

An unauthorized action in Navalny’s support was held in the center of Moscow on July 18 after a court in the city of Kirov had found him guilty of embezzlement in the Kirovles case and sentenced him to five years in general penitentiary.
