MOSCOW, August 12 (Itar-Tass) - The Yandex-Money Company has not received any requests from prosecutors regarding foreign financing of the Moscow’s mayoral candidate Alexei Navalny’s campaign, the company’s press secretary Asya Melkumova told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“Prosecutors have not addressed Yandex-Money as yet, thus we don’t know what kind of data the inspection was using, and we cannot comment on the published conclusions,” she said.
“An IP address confirms only the internet connection settings of a person transferring money and does not say anything about the person’s citizenship,” she continued. Melkumova stressed Yandex-Money did not operate companies, as only individuals may have accounts in the system.
Earlier on Monday, Prosecutor General’s Office said “during the inspection, we have confirmed the information about foreign financing of Alexei Navalny’s election campaign.”
“We have found out that via the Yandex-Money electronic payment system over 300 foreign companies and individuals, as well as anonymous payers from 46 countries, including the US, Finland, the UK, Switzerland, Canada, from 347 IP addresses, transferred to Alexei Navalny’s electronic purses and to those of his election headquarters’ representatives Lyaskin, Yankauskas and Ashurov, the money for the election campaign of Moscow’s mayoral candidate Navalny.”
A criminal case may be opened. The Prosecutor General’s Office has forwarded materials to the Interior Ministry.
Navalny’s election headquarters have denied receipt of financial assistance from abroad.
