The court recognized the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny guilty of misappropriation of company "Kirovles" property and sentenced him to 5 years in prison. Opposition forces are unanimous in their opinion that the case itself and the verdict are political.

10 July, 2013  // The situation in Kazan Universiade becomes ridiculous. The Russian team is leading with a total 82 medals, including 41 gold medals. However, the closest pursuers, Japan and South Korea, have 6 gold medals. Russian sports officials apparently are eager to show excellent results. That's why Russian champions of the Olympic Games, World Championships are included in the team. A brilliant solution!
