MOSCOW, November 9 (Itar-Tass) — Moscow's Zamoskvoretsky district court on Friday will consider the criminal case against Mikhail Kosenko over the Bolotnaya Square mass disorders. The court during the meeting will decide whether to impose coercive medical measures against the defendant.
Kosenko is charged with "mass disorders" and "use of violence, dangerous for life and health, against a representative of authorities".
According to the investigators' information, on May 6 at Bolotnaya Square in Moscow, during the permitted meeting of the opposition, Kosenko participated in mass disorders with the use of violence, property destruction and arsons.
During the events, Kosenko grossly violating public order, used physical violence against policemen, slightly injuring one of them, sources at the Prosecutor-General's Office said.
The forensic psychiatric examination has established that Kosenko was unable to realize the character and the public danger of his actions and did not control himself.
