MOSCOW, February 14 (Itar-Tass) – The criminal search case was opened against former chairman of the Georgian parliamentary committee for defence and security Givi Targamadze, who is accused of masterminding disorders in Russia, the Moscow police told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
“Today the Main Moscow Investigation Department of the Russian Investigation Committee received the documents, on the basis of which the criminal search case was opened against former chairman of the Georgian parliamentary committee for defence and security Givi Targamadze. He will be put on the federal wanted list soon,” the police said.
The Russian Investigation Committee accused in absentia Georgian politician Givi Targamadze in the criminal case over masterminding massive disorders in Russia, including defendants Sergei Udaltsov, Leonid Razvozzhayev and Konstantin Lebedev.
The Investigation Committee “ruled to bring accusations against Givi Targamadze. He will be put on the wanted list and the detectives will petition to the court to arrest him in absentia,” spokesman for the Russian Investigation Committee Vladimir Markin said.
He noted that Targamadze is accused of masterminding massive disorders in Russia along with Left Front coordinator Sergei Udaltsov, Udaltsov’s aide Konstantin Lebedev and aide to the State Duma deputy Leonid Razvozzhayev.
“In this respect, Targamadze is a foreign citizen, the detectives could not bring him to justice as a defendant without finding whether he has some immunity. Now the Russian Investigation Committee received an official response from the Russian Foreign Ministry that Targamadze does not have any immunity from criminal persecution,” Markin explained.
The criminal case was opened over masterminding of massive disorders in Russia after the broadcasting of the film Anatomy of Protest-2, in which Udaltsov, Lebedev and Razvozzhayev were talking with chairman of the Georgian parliamentary committee for defence and security Givi Targamadze and were discussing the masterminding of massive disorders and their financing from abroad.
On January 10, the Russian Investigation Committee merged this criminal case with the criminal case over massive disorders on the Bolotnaya Square. The Bolotnaya criminal case on massive disorders and resistance to police was opened after dramatic events on May 6, 2012, when the opposition action permitted by the state authorities on the Bolotnaya Square grew in the clashes with the police and massive disorders. On that day over 400 people were detained for illegal actions, about 30 policemen were injured, another several dozens of people were injured. Nineteen defendants were brought to justice in the criminal case over the disorders on the Bolotnaya Square, one suspected woman is put on the wanted list. Only Alexandra Dukhanina, 18, was put under house arrest in this criminal case.
