SOCHI, November 9. /TASS/. Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said he is unaware whether Russian President Vladimir Putin was briefed on Russian performance artist setting fire to the door of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB, former KGB) headquarters in Moscow last night.
"I cannot answer this question, I am unaware of this," the Kremlin spokesman said, answering a reporters’ question whether the Russian leader had been informed about the incident.
According to the online video footage, Russian performance artist Pyotr Pavlensky allegedly set fire to the door of the FSB building on Moscow’s Lubyanka Square. He was captured on the video standing next to the burning door holding a petrol canister.
The police placed Pavlensky in a temporary detention facility. His lawyer Olga Chavdar told TASS that on November 10 the investigator would file a notice at the court about choosing a pre-trial measure for the detainee.
