MOSCOW, April 10 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow’s Tverskoi district court of justice on Tuesday imposed a fine of 500 roubles on the leader of the Ecodefence movement, Yevgenia Chirikova, for putting up a tent in the Red Square during an opposition action on April 8.
The court found Chirikova guilty of disobeying police.
Chirikova claimed there are no laws requiring a sanction from the authorities to put a tent elsewhere. In her words, the action was geared to “set an example of non-violent civil protest.”
On Sunday, the police detained Chirikova and two more activists who had pitched a tent “in a guarded territory and ignored warnings by police officers.” On Monday, one of these two activists was sentenced to a fife-day administrative arrest, and the other one – to a two-day arrest.
