MOSCOW, October 8 (Itar-Tass) - Police have detained six protesters near the building of the Zamoskvorechye court which passed a guilty sentence on riot case suspect Mikhail Kosenko.
Several dozen activists flocked to the court to lend support for Kosenko. Police had warned them about inadmissibility of unsanctioned rallies, and arrested six youngsters.
Earlier in the day, the Zamoskvorechye court found Kosenko guilty of participation in the riot and using violence against a government representative, and ordered his compulsory treatment.
Kosenko has 2nd group disability stemming from army injury. According to a psychiatric examination, he was "unable to realize the nature and public danger of his actions or control them" during the riots.
The investigator said Kosenko had caused a light injury to a police officer during the May 6, 2012 riot.
He has been in custody since the summer of 2012.
