Moscow municipal deputy demands criminal investigation into personal data leak of 3,000 ‘Navalny supporters’

Moscow municipal deputy Yuri Volnov has formally appealed to Russia’s Investigative Committee, requesting an inquiry into a database leaked last week by the Telegram channel Comrade Major that contains the personal information of roughly 3,000 people. On Facebook, Volnov said he filed the report with the help of attorneys from the “Agora” human rights group. If Russian officials refuse to investigate the matter, he says he plans to go to the European Court of Human Rights.
