Opposition activist died after attack in Moscow

Alexey Stroganov

The activist of the movement “Solidarity” Alexey Stroganov, who was attacked two months ago, died in a Moscow hospital. About this in Facebook wrote one of the leaders of the movement Ilya Yashin.

According to him, in August of this year, shortly before the municipal elections on 10 September in Moscow, unknown assailants beat Stroganoff and hit him with an iron pipe on the head. All this time the victim was in a coma and died without regaining consciousness.

Criminal case about the attack is still not broken. “At the meeting of the Council of deputies of the Krasnoselsky district on Saturday will send a request with a demand to start an investigation,” — said Yashin.

Stroganov many years was the “Solidarity” movement and participated in the organization of protest actions of 2011-2012. He also worked in the territorial election Commission of the Krasnoselsky district of Moscow.
