Key Navalny ally says Anti-Corruption Foundation will not be disbanded

MOSCOW (Reuters) - The head of jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation said on Thursday its activities will not cease, regardless of an upcoming court hearing that may declare the main pillars of Navalny's political group extremist.

Navalny's Anti-Corruption Foundation may not exist as a legal entity after the court rules in the case, Ivan Zhdanov, the Foundation's head, said on a YouTube broadcast, but its activities will continue, he said.
