Alexei Navalny’s team has released a mammoth investigation into Vladimir Putin’s wealth, including a £1bn palace on the Black Sea allegedly built for the Russian president that the opposition leader called “the biggest bribe in history”.
Navalny’s allies are planning to hold demonstrations on Saturday in about 65 cities across the country in support of the Kremlin critic who was arrested and jailed on his return to Russia last weekend. Navalny, 44, returned to Russia on Sunday from Germany, where he had been recovering from a near-fatal poisoning with the novichok nerve agent in an attack he blamed on Russian security services and Putin.
The Kremlin has denied the luxury complex belongs to Putin and urged Russians not to send their money to “crooks”. They have also warned social media platforms against spreading online calls to stage weekend protests
