Reuters: Russia searches homes and offices of Kremlin critic Navalny's supporters12 September 2019 | 11:31 | FOCUS News Agency
The searches took place four days after Russia’s ruling United Russia party, which supports President Vladimir Putin, lost one third of its seats in the Moscow city assembly and suffered setbacks elsewhere while retaining its dominant position across Russia.
Navalny had urged his supporters to vote tactically to try to reduce the chances of Kremlin-backed candidates across the country, a strategy that appears to have had some success.
“The overall number of searches is over 150 and no less than 1000 Russian law enforcement employees were involved (in the raids),” Volkov wrote.
