Alexei Navalny ordered to delete anti-government video after losing defamation case

31 May

“You heard the key phrase in the verdict just now, the reason why this trial was held: ‘To remove the video and remove the investigation’,” he told reporters outside the court. “We are not going to do that. This investigation is based on facts.

“Don’t call him Dimon,” a documentary presented by Mr Navalny, has been viewed more than 20 million times since it was published on March 2.

The film lays out allegations that Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian prime minister, runs a secret property empire hidden inside a series of non-profit foundations officially controlled by friends.

The Anti Corruption Committee, the investigative NGO that Mr Navalny leads, claims its research shows Mr Medvedev uses alleged empire to accept bribes.
