Leonid Volkov was found guilty under Article Disobedience To Police Officer.
The Simonovsky Court in Moscow decided to arrest employee of the Anti-Corruption Fund (FBK) Leonid Volkov for 10 days for disobedience, Tass reports.
In particular, Volkov "refused to leave the premises of the fund at the request of the police, when the police carried out evacuation because of the report of the impending explosion." The message later turned out to be false.
According to the head of the Navalny’s campaign headquarters, he disobeyed the police, as at that time he broadcasted unauthorized protests in Moscow. Volkov did not admit his guilt.
In addition, the court ruled on the arrest of Memorial employee Ekaterina Melnikova, detained in the office of the FBK and found guilty under the same article, for seven days. As the agency notes, only 13 employees of the fund were detained.
Earlier, the court ruled to arrest FBK founder Alexey Navalny for 15 days for resisting police officers.
Police officers took Kristina Morozova to a police station to check her identity, where she ended up getting a closed craniocerebral injury, minor cerebral contusion, fissure fracture of her cheekbone, fracture of her left sphenoid bone, and large leg bruise.
Viktor Trutnev, ex-Head of the Moscow Criminal Investigation Department, has finished his career ‘in style’ – he went to jail. The Moscow Garrison Military Court has recently detained the retired general for the duration of the investigation. The former police commander is accused of mediation in bribery and bribe extortion. Trutnev was turned in by his former accomplices – FSB officers trying to extort 3 million rubles ($52.3 thousand) from the Director of Snegirev Research Technological Institute in exchange for covering up violations identified at the enterprise.
