MOSCOW, May 9 (Itar-Tass) —— A protocol of administrative offence has been drawn against opposition activist blogger Alexander Navalny who was detained for taking part in an unauthorized action in Moscow’s Nikitsky Boulevard, his lawyer Nikolai Polozov told Itar-Tass early on Wednesday.
“Currently, a protocol is being drawn against Navalny under article 20.2, part 2 of the Russian Code of Administrative Offence (violating the established procedure of a rally, demonstration, march or picket),” he said.
According to the lawyer, as soon as the protocol is ready Navalny will be released under a recognizance to appear before court. The offence carries a maximal punishment of a penalty of 2,000 roubles.
