Earlier, the president’s birthday was mentioned by the oppositionist, founder of the Anti-Corruption Fund Alexei Navalny. After Moscow’s Simonovsky court sentenced him to administrative detention for 20 days, Navalny said that this decision is a gift for the anniversary of the president. “Putin was so scared of our rallies in the regions that he decided to make a present for himself at the 65th anniversary. So it’s calmer when Navalny is locked up. We should not stop, “the politician wrote.
Peskov answered this with the phrase that “rallies and public appeals are contrary to the current legislation, those who make such appeals are prosecuted under the law.”
On October 4, being under arrest, Navalny called his headquarters in 80 cities of the country to organize pickets throughout the country on October 7.
