The St. Petersburg court extended the house arrest for two months to the former Deputy Head of the municipal Depatment of Rosreestr Boris Avakyan. The ex-official and a businessman is accused of evading customs duties (Art. 194 of the Criminal Code).

The closed court hearing was held on August 25, but it became known that lawyers were asked to cancel the arrest and replace it with a bail of 5 million rubles, but the court has not accepted arguments of the defense.
The capital of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) faces mass protests provoked by the rape of a local woman by a migrant worker from Kyrgyzstan. The criminal was promptly detained. However, the protests turned into riots and attacks on the natives of Central Asia. Representatives of the regional authorities supported the protesters, voicing anti-migrant statements. In Yakutsk, some outlets are closed, and transport communication is partially interrupted. A delegation from Kyrgyzstan arrived to defuse the conflict, but xenophobic sentiments are gaining momentum. Local security officials argue that the situation is under control, and detain violators promptly. Is it revenge for the victim or a surge of Yakut nationalism? The CrimeRussia restored the chronology of events and tried to find out what is happening in Yakutia.
