Disproof

The documents on which these accusations are based are confirmed to be fake. Navalny has dismissed the accusations as "fantasy" and "deliberate slander" and has said he will sue Rossiya 1 which ran a 15-minute report about the "case". MHG head Lyudmila Alekseyeva said the group had never given money to Mr Navalny (http://bbc.in/20BShpQ).
