Russian court orders Navalny group to suspend activities

A Russian court on Monday ordered jailed opposition figure Alexei Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation and its regional network to suspend all their activities, the group said.

The foundation said in statements on social media that the court had upheld a request from Russian prosecutors to suspend its activities pending a decision on designating it as “extremist”.
