Russia: Serebrennikov's lawyer comments on theatre director's detention in Moscow

The lawyer of Gogol Theatre director Kirill Serebrennikov commented on his client's detention, in Moscow on Tuesday. Serebrennikov was detained in St. Petersburg earlier in the day. Dmitry Kharitonov was unable to clarify the exact charges made against his client. «Since he has never filed any charges, I can't say what the numbers are and where the investigation takes them from. If he is charged... Еще today, then it will be clear,» he said. «I don't know what will happen [to Kirill Serebrennikov]. I hope that everyone will be prudent in this situation. Everything is exclusively in the power of the investigator,» Kharitonov added. Serebrennikov was detained while filming on location and taken to the Investigative Committee in Moscow. He is under investigation on suspicion of fraud. Svetlana Petrenko, official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia, said earlier on Tuesday that Serebrennikov «is suspected of the theft of at least 68 million roubles allocated between 2011-2014 for the project 'Platform.'»
