The Pskov Region
Lev Shlosberg, leader of the Pskov branch of YABLOKO, was elected MP of the Legislative Assmbly of the Pskov Region.
On 24 September, 2015, the Legislative Assembly deprived Lev Shlosberg of his regional MP proxies. The formal pretext was Lev Shlosberg defence of the NGO he had founded and his demand to exclude the NGO from the so-called “foreign agents” register.
