MOSCOW, June 19 (Itar-Tass) — The number of charged offenders in the May 6 riots on Moscow’s Bolotnaya Square has grown to twelve, Russian Investigation Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
He said the detectives charged Yaroslav Belousov earlier in the day and were bringing charges against three more suspects – Artyom Savelov, Vladimir Akimenkov and Fyodor Bakhov – at present.
Some of the participants in the March of Millions, moving from Bolshaya Yakimanka to Bolotnaya Square, demanded that the police open a wide access to the square and tried to break through police cordons. They fought the police and tried to pull off helmets from officers’ heads. More than 400 people were detained. About 30 policemen were hurt. As of now, there are 54 aggrieved parties in the case.
There are 13 detainees in the Bolotnaya riot case at present. The court ordered the arrest of Andrei Barabanov, Maxim Luzyanin, Denis Lutskevich, Stepan Zimin, Mikhail Kosenko, Fyodor Bakhov, Yaroslav Belousov, Oleg Arkhipenkov, Vladimir Akimenkov, Richard Sobolev, Alexander Kamensky and Artyom Savelov. Alexandra Dukhanina, 18, was put under house arrest.
Depending on circumstances, they were charged with participation in riots (Part 2, Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code) and violence against police officers (Part 1, Article 318).
