MOSCOW, October 17 (Itar-Tass) — Left Front leader Sergei Udaltsov, his aide Konstantin Lebedev and Leonid Razvozzhayev, an aide of State Duma deputy Ilya Ponomaryov, will be questioned at the Russian Investigative Committee, its spokesman Vladimir Markin said on Wednesday.
Earlier on Wednesday their houses were searched within the framework of a criminal case over preparations for mass riots launched after investigation had checked facts stated in the controversial documentary film “Anatomy of a Protest 2” shown by NTV television.
The criminal case against Udaltsov, Lebedev and Razvozzhayev was launched under part 1 of Article 30 and part 1 of Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code – “preparations for organizing mass riots” in Moscow and in other Russian regions.
Besides, investigators will check information about possible preparations for committing acts of terrorism within the framework of the criminal case, Markin said on Wednesday.
“Within the framework of a criminal case, investigators will also check information about preparations by participants in the meeting (documented in the film) of terrorist acts in the Russian Federation. In case this information is confirmed, it will get corresponding legal treatment and actions of Sergei Udaltsov and his interlocutors, including Georgian nationals, will be classified legally,” Markin said.
The persons involved in the case may face up to five years in prison.
