Russian opposition leader Alexey Navalny announced new criminal cases opened against him. One of them was for insulting the judge Vera Akimova. The other two are for fraud and the creation of a non-profit organization.

"Someone in prison is on the path of correction, and I, obviously, roll downhill. With every day I am becoming a more hardened criminal", - he wrote on his Instagram.

He added that an investigator visited him last night and reported three new criminal cases against the oppositionist. “Firstly, according to the investigators, I stole all the donations you sent to the FBK* (Anti-Corruption Foundation) (recognized as a foreign agent on the territory of the Russian Federation). Secondly, a case was initiated against me under the very exotic article 239“ Creation of a non-profit organization that infringes upon the person and the rights of citizens. "Investigators accuse me of" encouraging citizens to refuse to perform their civic duties. "Well, my third crime is insulting judge Akimova (I considered the case of insulting a veteran - ed.)", - Navalny wrote...

We will remind, in February the judge fined Navalny 850 thousand rubles in the case of libel against the veteran of the Great Patriotic War Ignat Artyomenko. During the consideration of this case, Navalny insulted the judge. He said that the meeting reminded him of "an interrogation in the fascist commandant's office", so he asked the judge for permission to address her "not your honor, but the Obersturmbannführer".

Navalny himself is now in a colony. In February of this year, the court replaced his suspended sentence in the Yves Rocher case with a real one.

* In accordance with the decision of the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation, FBK / Anti-Corruption Foundation is included in the register of non-profit foreign agents.
