The Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has canceled the registration of nine representatives from the federal list of the Yabloko party as candidates for the upcoming elections to the State Duma. Earlier, the Central Election Commission filed a lawsuit on this matter.

It dealt with the dismissal of Nikita Yesakov, Ivan Dobyt, Bayaskhalan Chimitdorzhiev, Alexandra Orlova, Mikhail Arkadiev, Alexander Amosov, Dmitry Semavin, Elena Plotnikova and Evgeny Martynov, from the elections, Interfax writes.

The reason for filing a claim was that these candidates had access to foreign financial instruments.

Earlier, for the same reason, Dmitry Potapenko, a candidate from Yabloko, an entrepreneur and host of Echo of Moscow, was withdrawn from the election. The candidate was also found to have "foreign assets". We are talking about owning shares in Yandex and Sber, since the shares of both companies were traded on foreign exchanges - NASDAQ and the London Stock Exchange.
