Opposition president candidate and anti-corruption activist, Alexei Navalny, was attacked at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport today with sausages, an apparent reference to the corruption trial of Alexei Ulyukayev, who recently said in court he thought he was getting wine and sausages instead of a $2 million bribe.
Navalny said on his blog that a young woman came up for his autograph and, “At this point, three fiends are swooping in from behind and throwing a bunch of sausages on my shoulders.”
Police were standing nearby and “smiling,” he added, reported The Moscow Times. Navalny accused Putin of masterminding the attack.
