Putin Foe Navalny Revives Protest Movement on Anti-War Platform
Jailed opposition leader’s aides see ‘unique’ opportunity
New national network will function clandestinely, they say
Top aides to jailed Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny said they’re restarting a national protest movement to capitalize on growing discontent over the war in Ukraine.
“It’s a unique situation which hasn’t existed for the last few years,” said Ivan Zhdanov, a Navalny lieutenant, in a video posted on YouTube on Tuesday. “The sleeping majority woke up. Putin woke it up himself.”
