This was reported on Twitter by the press secretary of the fund Kira Yarmysh.
According to her, the personal accounts of FBK employees were also blocked, according to which the investigation in the Russian Federation conducted an audit in the case on the legalization of illegal funds.
“By the decision of the Presnensky court, an interim measure in the form of an arrest was imposed on the account of FBK and some employees in the amount of 75 million rubles. This is the amount that is considered “laundered” (not a billion, as the UK writes). The Headquarters account does not appear at all in this matter, it is blocked for nothing! ”Yarmysh said.
According to lawyer Lyubov Sobol, associate of Alexei Navalny, FBK’s accounts are blocked to impede the work of the FBK and prevent the payment of fines for illegally detained protesters.
“The level of political pressure has increased many times. In any case, FBK will continue its work, ”Sable said.
