The Lefortovo Court of Moscow has arrested former Head of the ICR Investigations Directorate in the Volgograd region, Mikhail Muzraev, until August 10. He is charged with a terrorist act committed by a group of persons by previous concert (item ‘a’ part 2 of Art. 205 of the Russian Criminal Code), TASS reports. It concerns the arson of the house of Volgograd Region Governor, Andrey Bocharov.
