MOSCOW, April 11 (Itar-Tass) —— The Moscow Tverskoi district court has administered a fine worth 2,000 roubles to leader of the opposition Left Front Sergei Udaltsov for an attempt to stage an unauthorized protest act outside the State Duma on Wednesday.
Udaltsov was found guilty of violation of the established order of organization of public meetings and fined 2,000 roubles, a representative of the court said.
Udalstov said that the fine was administered by judge Olga Borovkova.
Police detained Udaltsov immediately after he went up from Teatralnaya metro station , but the opposition leader managed to tell journalists that he meant to go to the State Duma. Udaltsov even managed to describe his impression of the situation in Astrakhan in the south of Russia, where ex-candidate for the mayor's post Oleg Shein staged a hunger strike in protest against the results of the election of the Astrakhan city mayor.
Around ten opposition activists were detained for taking part in a protest act outside the State Duma.
