Russia Raiding Factory Run by Anti-Putin Activist’s Parents

Alexey Navalny, an anti-corruption activist who helped organize mass protests against President Vladimir Putin, said Russian investigators are raiding a willow-weaving factory owned by his parents near Moscow.

The Investigative Committee is searching for documents and evidence linked to an embezzlement case against Navalny, according to comments published on his Twitter Inc. account today. The law-enforcement agency’s press service official confirmed that a search was carried out in connection with the charges against Navalny, declining to comment further and asking not to be named in line with policy.
