In Orenburg, the regional headquarters of politician Alexei Navalny started its work again. The headqurters’ coordinator Eugeny Nevecherya told the correspondent of "7×7" about it on July 16.
— The permanent professional Alexei Navalny’s office is open from 15 July, — said Nevecherya. — We are going to investigate and tell the truth about the problems of our region, to expose the crooks among the authoritites, to organize observation of the elections and street protests.
According to him, the opening of the headquarters is not connected with the gubernatorial elections, which will be held in Orenburg Oblast on September 8:
— This is a simple coincidence, because Navalny's headquarters were opened in three more regions of Russia. But we will tell people about the candidates for governor, their election campaigns, and what needs to be done to defeat United Russia and stop its monopoly on power.
According to Nevecherya, the first Navalny’s headquarters opened in Orenburg on July 6, 2017 due to the presidential elections on March 18, 2018. In April 2018, the office stopped its work, but the activities of the politician’s supporters in the region continued. They participated in street actions against raising the retirement age, and the former coordinator of the staff Natalia Trubacheva, who headed the regional branch of unregistered party "Russia of the future" on June 1, 2018, was assigned with 30 hours of mandatory work for the action on September 8, 2018 by the court on September 21.
