RUSSIA : Blogger Navalny Charged Again With A Crime.


     President Putin's allies keep piling on the charges against blogger/lawyer Alexei Navalny...perhaps hoping the third time will be the charm...and something will stick.
     Russia's version of the FBI has charged anti-corruption activist Navalny...with fraud.
     The agency claims that 5 years ago...Navalny defrauded a now extinct liberal political party of $3.2 million/2.4 mn euros.
      If convicted....he could face 10 years.
      Just last week...Navalny was charged with another crime...embezzling millions from a postal business.
