Russia: Navalny trying to undermine the election’s legitimacy

Opposition leader Navalny plans to delegitimise Vladimir Putin’s expected re-election by monitoring polling stations and calling for an election boycott.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is banned from taking part in Sunday’s presidential election.

But Navalny and his fund against corruption have made it their priority to undermine the legitimacy of President Putin‘s assumed victory.

And they say they’ve got 15,000 people ready to help.
