Moscow’s Tverskoy District Court on Tuesday prolonged the detention of activist Nikita Chirtsov, who is accused for assaulting a policeman during an unauthorised rally in Moscow in July, fox six months until April 30.
Chirtsov is accused to have allegedly pushed police officer Yury Mikhailenok in the chest at the unsanctioned rally on July 27.
Speaking outside the court, Mikhailenok himself... Еще said that Chirtsov’s punishment was “inconsistent with the degree of offence.”
Several other protesters from the so-called 'Moscow Case' have been charged over the unsanctioned gatherings held during the summer in the Russian capital.
The demonstrations started in June in support of disqualified Moscow City Council election candidates.
