MOSCOW, July 22 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Investigative Committee has made the searches in three Russian regions within the criminal case over the disorders on the Bolotnaya Square in Moscow on May 6, 2012.
“In Chelyabinsk, Perm and Yekaterinburg the detectives have made the searches and interrogations of people, who were participating actively in the meetings, which Sergei Udaltsov, Leonid Razvozzhayev and other people, who were acting on the orders from (Georgian lawmaker) Givi Targamadze, arranged in several Russian regions in the spring and summer of 2012,” the Russian Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Monday.
“The documents confiscated in the search, as the testimony of interrogated people confirmed that the main goal of these meetings was the instigation of the largest possible number of people to participate in the opposition actions, during which massive disorders were planned to stage,” the Russian Investigative Committee added.
This is the combined criminal case, which the main investigation department of the Russian Investigation Committee is probing over the facts of masterminding, participation and appeals to massive disorders and the use of violence against the law enforcers on the Bolotnaya Square in Moscow on May 6, 2012.
The criminal case was opened on October 17, 2012 against leader of the Left Front Sergei Udaltsov, his aide Konstantin Lebedev and Leonid Razvozzhayev, who is an aide to State Duma deputy Ilya Ponomarev, after the inquest in the facts, which were showed in the documentary Anatomy of Protest-2. The documentary contained the video record of the talks over possible massive disorders in Moscow and several other Russian regions with the then chairman of the Georgian parliamentary committee for defence and security Givi Targamadze. The meeting was presumably held in June 2012 in Moscow.
Later this criminal case was merged with the criminal case over the disorders on the Bolotnaya Square.
