No money will be enough for Russian opposition

For some reasons it is considered that whoever complain the current government in Russia is an oppositionist and needs to be stimulated by investments.

The point of view supported by the media and the majority of experts, according to which there is a "party of power" in Russia, and there is also an opposition represented in the State Duma by the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, the Liberal Democratic Party and "Fair Russia" (it is a systemic opposition), as well as extra-parliamentary opposition (non-systemic) , which includes parties that did not overcome the 7% of votes barrier in the last elections, but still they are represented in the information space of Russia.

What is the "opposition" in Russia spending their money on?


It is necessary to understand that “non-systemic opposition” cannot do without money at all. In a parliamentary election’s year, even more - serious finances are needed. Political experts predict an intensification of the protest closer to the election day. The resumption of mass actions in February was also announced by the headquarters of opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

It's time to remind him, because his name has already begun to be forgotten.

The blogger owns an 1/3 apartment in Maryino (Moscow district). Its area is 78.5 m2. Navalny also has an apartment in use in Moscow (on the Avtozavodskaya metro station) under Short-term lease for living. Its area is 158.7 m2. The founder of FBK (The Anti-Corruption Foundation) owns shares of 35 issuers (Gazprom, Rosneft, Barnaul Generation, etc.). These are millions and millions of rubles.

The income of Navalny's wife against the background of her husband is insignificant and for 2013-2016 amounted to a little more than 257 thousand rubles, there is also a bank deposit in Rosbank in the amount of about three million rubles and a car - Ford Explorer (2012).

According to media reports, the multimillion-dollar receipts to the bitcoin wallets of the leader of the Russian opposition constantly came before the publication of his "investigations". During or immediately before trips abroad, Navalny withdrew almost 47 million rubles, which exceeds his income for six years (2011-2017).

In 2018 Navalny made at least nine foreign trips, he visited Rome, Riga, Budapest, Warsaw, New York, Malaga, Vienna, as well as a number of cities in Germany.

Let's face it, Alexei Navalny lives for his own pleasure.

The closest associate of Navalny, Leonid Volkov and his relatives, own a house in Luxembourg worth over 700 000 €, which is located at 31, Rue Des Pres, L-8265, Mamer, Luxembourg.

Lyubov Sobol, Alexey Navalny's FBK employee, and her husband Sergei Mokhov, according to information from open data from the Federal Tax Service, have: an apartment of 38 m2 (10, Zagorodnoye Shosse, the average cost is over 7 million rubles); apartment 75 m2 (Narodnaya street, average cost is 25 million rubles); land property of 2000 m2 (Ivanovskoye village, Dmitrovsky district).

Sobol's relatives have the following property: an apartment on Bukinskoye highway in Lobnya worth 5 million rubles (owners: Lyubov Sobol, her father and mother); apartment of 64 m2 (2nd Chernogryazskaya street, 14 million rubles, owner: Lyubov Sobol father's wife). He also has a land property of 800 m2 near the village of Bolshoye Uvarovo (Moscow region). The approximate total cost of residential property of Lyubov Sobol and her relatives, excluding the assessment of land property, as of April 2019 is 51 million rubles.

And all these three figures complain the authorities in Russia, they all actively agitated and continue to agitate Russian citizens to participate in “peaceful” unauthorized protests and processions. Does it mean that these are the "leaders" of the non-systemic opposition in Russia? Do they live on the breadline, and do they live in slum conditions?

By the way, another opposition activist, Dmitry Gudkov, who has recently returned from oblivion to the media space and has already moved to Ukraine, recalled his family clan, the head of which, Gennady Gudkov, bought an apartment in one of the prestigious districts of London near Buckingham Palace together with his wife. Housing in the Cleland House cost over 220 million rubles. And a year later, in 2013, Dmitry Gudkov purchased an elite apartment of 248 m2 in the Kurkino worth 1.5 million €, but he claimed that he paid only five million rubles for the townhouse.

Another "activist" Ilya Yashin has a Mercedes-Benz C 180 worth 2.4 million rubles. He also owns an apartment in the Moscow elite residential complex Ivolga worth 13.5 million rubles. Ilya Yashin also owns an apartment in Bulgaria and a number of non-residential spaces in Russia.

We must stop sponsoring mediocre people

Russian oppositionists are counting on breaking the government to get a majority in the State Duma. Such are their dreams. They just don't talk about it now, which in principle is correct. Otherwise they would have been laughed at.

Paradoxically, the Russian opposition is not interested in deputy mandates. They will do their best not to participate in any elections and blame the authorities for everything. Their part of the election campaign is needed just to discredit the authorities.

However, the most important thing for these mediocrities is that the flow of financial injections is not interrupted and in no case dried up at all. Sometimes it seems that for the citizens of Europe, President Putin has invented the most terrible and dangerous weapon - the Russian opposition, for which the EU citizens really may not have enough money.

If I write what I think. Is that an evidence of spamming or being a bot?
