MOSCOW, May 24 (Itar-Tass) — Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov went to visit the so-called "camp" of the Opposition in central Moscow's Arbat Street, after serving 15 days of administrative arrest. On Thursday afternoon, he intends to attend the public hearing of the bill proposing to increase fives for violations of the law on rallies.
"And then I'll get down to preparing the June 12 action; we'll be seeking new elections," Udaltsov told Itar-Tass.
Udaltsov was detained in Patriarshiye Prudy in central Moscow on May 9, where Opposition activists were trying to hold "an indefinite promenade." A magistrate court found him guilty of violating Article 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses /"disobeying legitimate order by police officer"/ and sentenced him to 15 days of arrest, the maximum punishment in such cases.
Udaltsov denied his guilt. He announced a "dry hunger strike" in protest and was hospitalized several times.
