Two Navalny supporters in Kirov were jailed today – Georgy Uspensky, an assistant to the coordinator of Navalny’s campaign headquarters in the city, for five days for organising a rally on October 7, and volunteer Richard Rouz for three days for non-payment of a fine, OVD-Info reported.
Later in the evening OVD-Info reported that Navalny’s campaign coordinator in Veliky Novgorod, Konstantin Pokhilchuk, had been jailed for three days. Pokhilchuk had previously been charged with “demonstrating a Nazi symbol” in connection with a video that appeared in his VKontakte video list in which a drunk man danced a Caucasian Lezginka in front of a Christmas tree and decorations in the shape of a swastika.
