MOSCOW, March 7 (Itar-Tass) – Pavel Dmitrichenko, a soloist of Russia’s Bolshoi Theatre Ballet, who is suspected of organizing an attack on Bolshoi artistic director Sergei Filin, has pleaded not guilty.
Appearing at the Moscow’s Tagansky district court on Thursday, he denied his involvement in the offence.
“Your are sure I did it, I have never admitted my guilt,” he said.
Dmitrichenko, the suspected mastermind, was detained on March 5, together with Yuri Zarutsky, who has a previous criminal conviction, and driver Andrei Lipatov, who brought the perpetrator to the scene of crime.
