Navalny Protests in Moscow

Detest Putin as we do, we're ambivalent about Navalny.

He's been a strong anti-Corruption force in Russia, he's pro same-sex marriage and openly supports Black Lives Matter..

But he's also a key driving force behind Russian Ethnic Nationalism; He collaborates with extremists with some pretty vile views, refuses to condemn those same when asked ... and he called foreigners 'cockroaches'.

Which is the real Navalny ? 

Until he provides some clarity regarding his past views - and that past is still quite recent - he can hardly claim much of the moral high ground.
