MOSCOW, June 10 (Itar-Tass) - A magistrate at Moscow's Ostankinsky court on Tuesday will begin to review a criminal case against former leader of the liquidated Slavic Union Dmitry Demushkin, accused of extremism.
At the Tuesday hearing, the court will set the date for the hearing on the merits and settle procedural issues.
Demushkin is accused under Article 282, Part 1 of Russia's penal code /organization of the operation of a public organization, whose activity was banned as extremist by court ruling/.
The investigator said the defendant who did not want to comply with the Moscow City Court ruling which had banned his organization as extremist, renamed it to "Slavic Power" and continued to lead it.
"He had not changed the program, objectives, tasks, slogans and emblems, recruiting new members, taking part in the organization of mass events, and using the websites for propaganda which the Slavic Union had used before," the Investigative Committee said.
