Later, he was charged with a few more episodes of Bribe-Taking. Almost 9 billion rubles ($136.3 million) were found in the apartment of the colonel’s relatives; Zakharchenko could not explain the origin of the money.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
