The Russian Prosecutor General's Office believes that opposition activist Alexei Navalny should be given a ten-year prison sentence following his conviction in the Yves Rocher and Kirovles cases.
According to an Interfax correspondent, in its complaint lodged with the Moscow City Court, the state prosecutor says that the Navalny brothers' actions as part of the Yves Rocher case cannot be qualified as corporate fraud, and the sentences issued by Moscow's Zamoskvoretsky Court to Alexei and his brother Oleg in this case were too lenient.
The state prosecutor demands a ten-year prison sentence for Alexei Navalny, and an eight-year term for Oleg Navalny.
Alexei Navalny's Progress Party not included in the federal list of political forces allowed to run in elections intends to prepare for the 2016 elections to the State Duma and region legislatures.
Moscow court has convicted Alexei Navalny of money laundering and fraud and has given him a suspended sentence of three years and six months.
