Ildar Dadin detained while protesting in Moscow
Police arrested Ildar Dadin near the Federal Penitentiary Service Headquarters where he had staged a single-person picket.
According to Interfax, Dadin had staged a single-person picket requiring to dismiss Aleksander Terekh, Head of the Administration for the Republic of Karelia of the Federal Penitentiary Service of the Russian Federation. He has been arrested by police officers and escorted to a car marked with insignia of the Department for the Yakimanka District of Moscow of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) of the Russian Federation.
It was reported that the policemen have approached Dadin and asked for his ID; in response he offered them to read him the reasons for this request and his rights.

Now Ildar Dadin stages a single-person picket
On February 26, 2017, Dadin has been released from a penal colony where he had been serving a term for repeated violations of the legislation regulating public gatherings. Originally he was sentenced to three years behind bars, but then the court has reduced the punishment to 2.5 years. On February 22, 2017, the Supreme Court has ruled to annul the sentence and release Dadin from the penal colony.
Zaur Dadaev, who is imprisoned for the murder of politician Boris Nemtsov, may soon be put in stricter conditions of detention. Being sent for any, sometimes contrived violations of the regime in a punitive confinement (SHIZO), Dadaev is being forced to pass a check on the lie detector and give evidence on the Nemtsov case.
The video showing prisoner being tortured by officers of the Yaroslavl correctional camp No. 1 (IK-1), which was published on July 20, caused a public outcry and the initiation of a criminal case by the Investigative Committee. However, a year ago, an ICR officer found no exceeding of official powers in the video, thus justifying the torture.
A large-scale purge of thieves in law, which started shortly after Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan’s coming to power, continues in Armenia. After receiving threats of arrests, thieves were taken in custody for carrying weapons and drugs.
However, the thief, who is currently dividing the spheres of influence in Ukraine’s Odessa region with Antimoz Kukhilava through his representatives, has been sentenced in absentia. Mindiya Goradze is not in Georgia at the moment.
