Russian Court Imposes Sweeping Bans On Kremlin Critic’s Group

Moscow: (HRNW) A Russian court on Tuesday imposed sweeping bans on jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK), its director said, while it considers whether to designate the group an extremist organisation.

FBK director Ivan Zhdanov said on Twitter that the court had banned the group from posting content on the internet, using state media, organising protests, participating in elections and using bank deposits.

Earlier Tuesday the Moscow city court’s press service told reporters a judge had agreed to a “ban on certain activities” for the FBK without clarifying what they were as the case is being heard behind closed doors.
