Navalny explained his position on the Crimea

According to Navalny, the problem of the Crimea to spoil Russia’s relations with the West and became the reason of sanctions looks “insoluble” and could worsen the situation for many years.

The politician also said the Agency’s confidence that it will allow elections. “I will be allowed to vote. I have no doubt that I will participate, we will achieve our goal. Maybe that’s their cunning plan, checking me in at the last moment, when time to collect signatures and other things will not, and then say: “Come, lead his campaign,” he said.
