MOSCOW, April 29. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin hardly sees the leader of the Party of Progress, Aleksei Navalny, as a political threat, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.
"In general, given the level of credibility, popularity and electoral rating, the president can hardly see other politicians as a threat," Peskov told the media.
He refrained from comments on the decision to strip the Party of Progress of its registration. He advised the media to turn to the Justice Ministry for explanations.
On Tuesday, the Justice Ministry said it had declared void the state registration of the Party of Progress, of which Navalny is the leader. The Justice Ministry said the party had violated certain legal rules. For instance, during the six months following its registration it failed to open local chapters in no less than half of Russia’s regions.
