The headquarters of Alexei Navalny announced the discovery in Moscow of the premises where there was a massive falsification of signatures in support of candidates for the elections to the Moscow City Duma, including Andrei Sokolov. Sokolov said that he had already collected enough signatures, and he did not need to engage in fraud  .
FBK lawyer Lyubov Sobol , a candidate for deputy of the Moscow City Duma, stated that the signatures in support of the candidate Andrei Sokolov were forged. She published a video in which her associates conduct an apartment survey at the addresses allegedly indicated in Sokolov’s subscription lists. Residents of these apartments on camera say that no one came to them, they did not put signatures for the candidates  .
On July 16, 2019, Andrei Sokolov was denied registration by an election commission in the 43rd district as a candidate for participating in the Moscow City Duma elections. In his subscription lists, 580 signatures were invalidated  . [eleven]
