Navalny Targets United Russia Deputy's Miami Apartment

Anti-corruption blogger and opposition leader Alexei Navalny asked prosecutors to investigate a United Russia Duma deputy for his failure to declare $2.5 million worth of U.S. real estate among his assets. Similar complaints have been sent to United Russia and the State Duma, Navalny’s spokeswoman, Anna Veduta, told

Navalny wrote on his blog Tuesday that he had established Vladimir Pekhtin’s ownership of property, including two Miami apartments and a plot of land, via publicly available sources. He said the deputy failed to include the assets in his mandatory annual declaration of property and assets.

Pekhtin has denied the allegations, telling Izvestia that he has “practically nothing” in the way of property abroad.
