Russian lawyer and anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny sparked protests across his country when he posted on YouTube a video revealing the financial corruption of Dmitry Medvedev, currently prime minister, and Putin’s longtime political partner, in the Russian Federation. The exposé, He Is Not Dimon to You, shows how corrupt Russia has become, and is a forewarning of what America will become should Trumpism prevail. (Dimon is a disparaging diminutive of Dmitry.)
I’ve embedded Navalny’s documentary with English captions. (It’s worth nothing that there’s little of a free press left in Russia, so Navalny had to use an American YouTube channel to post his work on Russia’s lamentable political situation. Many Russians, legitimately distrustful of a pro-Putin state media, found and watched it nonetheless.)

We found and documented [by] the corrupt empire of the Prime Minister, consisting of a network of philanthropic organizations, issued on his proxies.
