Navalny's movement is unlike any in recent history.

In 2006, a lawyer named Alexei Navalny started a blog where he wrote about corruption in his home country of Russia. It’s the most prominent problem under the regime of Vladimir Putin, who has ruled Russia since 2000. Putin has systematically taken over the country’s independent media, oligarchy, elections, and laws to cement his own power and wield corruption to his advantage.
That’s what Navalny set out to expose. And in 2010, he published a groundbreaking investigation into a state-owned transportation company, Transneft, which was funneling state money into the hands of its executives. The post launched Navalny into politics.
By 2016, he had become the face of Russia’s opposition movement, run for mayor, and was running for president against Putin himself. Navalny was unifying Russia’s opposition like no politician had before. That’s why the Kremlin tried to kill him. Navalny survived the assassination attempt, launching a movement never before seen in Russia.

I don't believe Navalny... I don`t believe Putin... I don't believe that a completely clean politician will come out of somewhere.. He's probably lying, too in some places for looking better or make people believe him. The media and investigators will do the same. Politics is all theater and a huge show.. The consequences of which we will have to be dealt with.

Am I the only one to notice that Vox said that he was campaigning in August 2020, when in actuality, the correct date is August 2019? Otherwise it'd make no sense, you'd have to be a time traveller.

Alexei Navalny wants to return country in the 1990-s of country history. It will be a catastrophe for Russia. And he works for this goal against Putin. Only naive young men can trust him.
If they have federation, republic, democratic, or democratic republic its "president" is not reall who he presents himself

Navalny actually has quite of inspiration to "pride of a country" i heard some political activist or political opposition figures make navalny as their idol, that no matter the harsh consequences, the courage of serving your country for the better has been displayed to navalny.
