MOSCOW — French cosmetics company Yves Rocher has become the target of Russian political opposition’s rage. What started as a business dispute between the firm and its logistics company has morphed into a war of words on social networks here.
The situation dates back to Dec. 4, when Yves Rocher filed a complaint against the Glavnoye Podpisnoye Agentstvo logistics concern owned by opposition leader Aleksey Navalny and his brother Oleg Navalny regarding what it claims to be an unfair contract signed in August 2008. At the time, Oleg Navalny was working for the Russian Post, which is the national mail carrier. It is alleged that when an Yves Rocher representative approached him, Navalny directed the person to GPA and that the cosmetics maker then signed a contract with the logistics company at rates 60 percent higher than those charged by the Russian Post.
