Alexei Navalny began his election campaign in the regions of Russia with a trip to Murmansk. Thousands of citizens came to his rally, and in the rain. This is the success of local activists who organized the rally and campaigned selflessly. Alexander Rastorguev and Dmitry Kuvaldin spent several days with Navalny's Murmansk headquarters coordinator Violetta Grudina, an LGBT activist who was attacked because of her sexual orientation.
