Automatic TRANSCRIPT

This week police also rated the office of Moscow's most well-known opposition figure Alexei Navalny and his team on top of that one of Navan as close allies was forcibly conscripted into the Army Nikita. Cooler Chekhov knows that man from Navales Group the Anti Corruption Foundation Makita joined us from Berlin. They cannot taking forcefully to the army is just. There is no such legal way to do that. So in and this is why this is so unusual because it's just something not within the law and it's like so cynically taken to the place where there is no communication and there is no civil as as we know there is no civil transport of civil service to displace journalists won't be able to get there so lawyers won't be able to get unless they got the seats in the military the plane so this is a relatively new tactic. By the Kremlin what what concerns you most about it well because it's actually prison sentence for one year for the person because was he would be in the accident he won't be able to leave and it's and at the same time he has the military he has. Medical conditions prevented him from serving in the army. And so it's something extraordinary brain. It's something like like like arrest or detention Nikita. Help US understand. What exactly is the goal of love? FBI The Anti Corruption Foundation of his organization. What is the work you do? We are making the news with publish them. And we informed the General Russian from public on the on what is actually happening and how the corruption works in the highest level of the Russian government. This is just the basic idea at the same time since Aleksei Alexander Valentine's the pollution and he's like main platform is the Fighting corruption we we like we support his main political. restful and as I said earlier. You're in Berlin. Nick you're actually wanted In Russia by the F. Espy the domestic security forces out. Why are you willing to take these risks continuing to do this? Work on behalf of Putin's opposition. It was almost like seven or six six years ago when I at one point thought that time and not going to be anymore in the corporate environment. And I'm GonNa do something for my country and sideshow to sewer Kwalik State. So it was watching Alexei navalny crack jokes with his colleagues and make light of the raid while it was happening. I'm sure you haven't lost your sense of Russian humor humor but I mean how are you able to do that end in Berlin. Do you still see the humor in all this well If you are in Berlin it's easy to see Jolson that because you don't have that risks that your computer will be stolen by the police officers you get used to it. I think of our employees were at least interrogated or detained one Johnson. Some of them spent several months in in in in this shot detentions still nothing funny about detention so what. We're looking at Here at the end of 2019 is the Kremlin staging a number of schemes to silence the opposition in Russia. What's next for F-? PK The anti corruption foundation or are you looking more at twenty twenty one when there are parliamentary elections in Russia so we have implemented smart votes tactic or smart vote system in this year earrings summer and it was successful with say here. Are The candidates that time notes anyhow links to the United Russia. The pro-government So we expect that we go to use the same tactic. I'm this SMUT. Vote System in two thousand twenty one in the State Duma elections however it depends ends on the activities and the steps of the government because we if that they are trying to implement the new restrictions and Internet's attempting to implement them because they would like to block some particular contents or some particular videos in Youtube for example some particular website like the smart. Whoa let's see what they will do? So our tactic may change Makita Kulikov in Berlin. He works on the Investigations Unit at the Anti Corruption Foundation. A group group led by prominent opposition leader in Moscow Alexei Navalny Nikita. Thank you very
