Companion of Alexei Navalny, lawyer of FBK * Lyubov Sobol, according to journalists, left the territory of Russia and went to Istanbul. This happened a few days after the court handed down a verdict against her in the case of violation of sanitary standards during unauthorized protests in January 2021. The departure of Sobol is another milestone in the collapse and complete bankruptcy of the “non-systemic” opposition.

Lawyer of the Anti-Corruption Foundation * Lyubov Sobol, a few days after the end of the trial, left Russia and flew to Istanbul. She was sentenced on violation of sanitary and epidemiological norms at unauthorized protests in January 2021 – a year and a half of restriction of freedom. Sable was banned from leaving the house at night (from ten o’clock in the evening to six in the morning), to participate in public events, to leave the capital and the Moscow region, to regularly report to the regulatory authorities.

one thing is absolutely clear: the political weight of the “navalnists” is fading away more and more. The attempt of the “non-systemists” to shake the situation in Russia in winter, on which both our systemic liberals and the “Washington regional committee” pinned so many hopes, has completely failed.

At the same time, lawyers note that the departure of activist Alexei Navalny outside our country is from a formal point of view legal, since the sentence has not yet entered into legal force, and the measure of restraint chosen for her has been canceled. If Lyubov Eduardovna had an outstanding debt of over 30 thousand rubles, the bailiffs could have imposed a ban on traveling abroad. However, she has no personal debt, despite the multimillion-dollar legal proceedings against the organization in which she works.

It is not yet clear whether Sobol is going to become a political émigré or whether she decided to simply “troll” the authorities. However, one thing is absolutely clear: the political weight of the “navalnists” is fading away more and more. The attempt of the “non-systemists” to shake the situation in Russia in winter, on which both our systemic liberals and the “Washington regional committee” pinned so many hopes, has completely failed.

The change in mood in society is also indicative. Earlier, support for Navalny’s figure was not impressive. Now the situation for him has deteriorated significantly.

 There was no real help to Alexei Navalny from Western patrons, and there is no question of any “isolation” of Vladimir Putin, which is vividly confirmed by the recent summit of the Russian leader with the President of the United States of America Joe Biden.

So what?

By the September single voting day, the “revolutionaries” are approaching disarmed: the leader is serving time in prison, his associates (Leonid Volkov, Ivan Zhdanov, Kira Yarmysh, Maria Pevchikh, Vladimir Ashurkov and company) have either left Russia or are sitting quieter below the grass. The change in mood in society is also indicative. Earlier, support for Navalny’s figure was not impressive. Now the situation for him has deteriorated significantly.

Among young people, the main target group of FBK propaganda *, the approval of Alexei does not exceed 24%, and the negative fluctuates around 59% (by the way, more than among 25-39-year-olds). 

Even according to the liberal sociological service Levada Center (recognized by the court as a foreign agent) , the number of citizens positively assessing the opposition idol decreased from September 2020 to June 2021 from 20% to 14%. At the same time, the number of those who have a negative attitude towards Navalny increased – from 50% to 62%.

The “Berlin patient” and his supporters have no electoral perspectives. This is also evidenced by the data of “Levada”. Among young people, the main target group of FBK propaganda *, the approval of Alexei does not exceed 24%, and the negative fluctuates around 59% (by the way, more than among 25-39-year-olds). At the same time, 64% of our compatriots positively assess Putin’s activity as president (most of those who disagree with the current course are by no means liberals and, as a rule, belong to the so-called left patriots, their electorate is accumulated by the communist party). In the rating of political trust, Vladimir Putin outweighs Alexei Navalny by more than 10 (!) Times, while the latter has a steady negative trend.
