POISONED KREMLIN CRITIC ALEXEI NAVALNY OUT OF COMA AND RESPONSIVE: GERMAN HOSPITAL Navalnys spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh and fellow team member Georgi Alburov front the Tatarstan film, and said they were followed and harassed while shooting by men who blocked their paths with quad bikes or lurked nearby. Some dramatic images along those lines appear in the film.Yarmysh talks about how Tatarstan was supposed to be one of Navalnys stops on his late summer swing through Russian regions ahead of elections. Navalny was lobbying forSmart Voting. He argued that ifhe and people like him couldnt run in elections in Russia, the next best thing wasto simply vote for a candidate who is not from the same party as President Vladimir Putin, United Russia. Navalnyfamously called it the party of crooks and thieves and wantedto chip away at its monopoly on power howeverpossible.He believes Smart Voting can eventually dislodge it from power.

Even if you dont understand Russian, it is compelling TV, Zafesova said. Navalnys investigations have evolved over the years from merely facts and analysis on his blog to full-scale movies.He invented a whole new way to oppose power, a mix of media and politics which is very important in a censored media environment like Russia and fills the void of free media as well as free debate and an independent judicial system.Navalnys videos are funny, clever, precise and shocking, not just angry denunciations of the wrongdoings of government.
