“This is nothing special, just a pig’s head,” Volkov wrote alongside the posted photos on Facebook.
He explained that the head — evoking scenes from the classic mafia film “The Godfather” — was delivered to a businessman who offered his furniture store as a venue for Navalny’s meeting.
“The entrepreneur, of course, links this to the upcoming Nov. 4 meeting. And, of course, he doesn’t plan to retreat,” Volkov wrote.
This is the second Navalny-related incident in Irkutsk. In May, an armed gang violently beat the son of the landlord of one of Navalny’s local campaign headquarters. The 41-year-old lawyer has himself faced repeated physical attacks, one of which landed him in the hospital and caused him to almost lose vision in one eye.
