On 2 March, opposition leader Aleksey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation published a documentary investigation, ‘He is not Dimon to you’. Dimon is a diminutive form of Dmitry, implying familiarity. The film claims that Dmitry Medvedev is at the head of a multi-level corruption scheme in the country. When the Russian authorities declined to comment on the issue, Navalny called for street rallies to be held on 26 March. The rallies were attended by opposition activists in several Russian cities.
