Video stream almost 4-hour court session was carried out in YouTube channel Newcaster.TV and «Radio Liberty».

As reported NEWSru.com with reference to the lawyer of the politician , Olga Davydov, Zvereva the texts of the verdicts for 2013 and 2017, both documents are the same, even not approximately, but exactly «to a comma».

«All the time expect now someone will run out screaming: «it’s a draw!» But sur is ongoing. Read the cancelled sentence,» — commented on the situation online the head of the legal service of the Fund of struggle against corruption (FBK) Ivan Zhdanov.

At the end of the first hour Bulk started to do a selfie in the courtroom: «in fact, such is the contempt of court, but I could not resist. Bored — just read the old sentence.»

«The old and new sentence coincide 100%», — he stressed.

Edition of «the Media» noted only one difference: judge vtyurin excluded from the new sentencing testimony of witnesses who were at the first trial but did not participate in the present.

As explained by the lawyers, this time the court refused to questioning all of the witnesses for the defence, and the prosecution refused questioning nearly a dozen Directors of leskhozes and arrested in June 2016 for a bribe in especially large size the Governor of the Kirov region Nikita Belykh.

We will remind, in October 2013 Navalny received a 5-year probation, during which he was denied the right to participate in elections. After this period, the opposition too will not be able to participate in the elections because his criminal record isn’t extinguished. Probation for a previous conviction is repaid after a trial period, which in the case of Navalny is, according to the court, five years.

The current court decision, according to the politician, the Kremlin needs for additional insurance.

Putin’s decisions of the judiciary, he objecive to the ECHR.

Navalny said he will achieve cancellation of the sentence and in any case will participate in the elections

«Right now I am involved in the election campaign,» — said Navalny in court after sentencing. The hearing he called the «telegram from the Kremlin» that they fear his participation in the elections. «This is an electoral fight,» he said.

«This sentence we do not recognize the» before the election he «absolutely guaranteed» to be canceled added Bulk. «We’re going to campaign regardless of the fact that imposes the Kremlin», — he stressed.

Written in the Constitution, said the opposition that the elections are eligible to participate those who did not contain in imprisonment places.

On his page on Facebook he wrote that «the sentence can be any other than acquittal,» and said that his wife just in case Packed a bag for jail.

After this sentence «to defend their opinion will become a little bit harder, but for a decent person it should lead to a single consequence: to defend their opinions and their rights more insistently,» concluded the opposition leader.

«The most important thing we all need to understand: there is no cunning plan of the Kremlin to hold power there. It’s very simple. Controlled by the courts, law enforcement and the media want to force you to obey them in advance. In the initiative order. You will not punish, not force, but the horror caught, and you already figured in my head how to behave so that the system you have been approved and not had to claim you,» — said Navalny.

As previously reported, in major cities of Russia began to open up campaign headquarters for the Bulk of work planned in 2018 Russian presidential elections. In particular, a headquarters was opened in St. Petersburg.

From a legal point of view the verdict in the «case «Kirovec» deprive Navalny of the ability to participate in the presidential campaign

Mikhailov said that «according to the law on election (President) convicted for serious article — and the article 160 of the Criminal code is a serious is deprived of the right to run.»

Under paragraph 5.2 of the Federal law «On presidential elections» have no right to be elected President of the Russian Federation citizens sentenced to deprivation of liberty for committing grave and (or) particularly grave crimes and having on the day of voting not removed and outstanding previous conviction for the specified offence and sentenced to imprisonment for committing a serious crime, which conviction is removed or extinguished, — before the expiration of 10 years from the date of withdrawal or cancellation of conviction.

Thus, Navalny will not be able to qualify for the presidency in the next decade, if the court does not remove his criminal record, Mikhailov said, adding that the Constitution allows to be elected to all citizens, except those held in places of deprivation of liberty. «That is, in this case there is a legal conflict», — quotes «Interfax» words Mikhailova.

«Because of the revelations of our Fund of struggle against corruption is interested in ousting me from my political activities,» — said Navalny himself during the break.
