“In particular, the investigators have information that one of the organisers of the mass action in Bolotnaya Square was lawyer of the Moscow Bar Association ‘Sodeistviye’ Yelena Lukyanova. In this connection she may have information about its preparation, organisation and implementation. The investigators earlier could not question Lukyanova because she was staying outside of the Russian Federation,” the SK official added.
In addition, the investigation has established that on May 6 lawyer Mark Feigin, being on the stage in Bolotnaya Square, told the protesters about the beginning of a sit-in action at the Udarnik cinema and urged citizens to join it.
“These actions of Feigin were recorded on a videotape that the investigation has,” the SK added.
The SK recalled that Feigin spread in the media statements that he would come for questioning with lawyers Violetta Volkova and Nikolai Polozov. The SK said that lawyer Violetta Volkova was also in Bolotnaya Square on May 6 during the rally.
