MOSCOW, May 12 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow police have conducted an inquiry and established that the OMON policeman who beat a girl in the video recording of the so-called "March of Millions" on May 6 is not a Moscow policeman.
The materials are handed over to the Russian Interior Ministry to establish the identity of the man, the press service of the Moscow police department told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The incident was widely discussed after the video was shown in the Internet. It recorded the actions of a policeman who beat a girl, even kicked her in the stomach, during the actions of protest at Bolotnaya Square.
The Investigative Committee opened a criminal case over the incident on charges of power abuse with violence.
The Russian Investigative Committee on Thursday ordered its Moscow department to conduct an inquiry into the incident.
Moscow's police have checked all of the Moscow OMON special-purpose unit members who were on duty at Bolotnaya Square on May 6. As was preliminary established, none of the Moscow policemen was the man in the video.
Additional police forces were also on duty at the square on that day.
The materials of the case will be referred to the Russian Interior Ministry, the press service said.
In connection with the initiated criminal case, the materials, including the information about the Moscow OMON policemen who were on duty on May 6, will be also handed over to the Investigative Committee.
Though the Moscow police addressed the girl who was in the video and witnesses of the incident, none of them has given any information to police about it, and no complaints have been received as of 12:00 Moscow time, May 11, the press service said.
The Moscow police department repeats its request to all who know something about the incident to call police.
