MOSCOW, December 19. /ITAR-TASS/. The Zamoskvoretsky district court in Moscow has dropped legal proceedings against four participants in the Bolotnaya square riot case under the amnesty, court spokeswoman Yevgenia Pazukhina has told Tass.

This decision refers to Vladimir Akimenkov, Nikolai Kavkazsky, Maria Baronova and Leonid Kovyazin.

Two of them, Kovyazin and Akimenkov, were released in the courtroom. Akimenkov, Kavkazsky and Kovyazin were accused of participation in mass riots (Part 2 of Article 212 of the Russian Criminal Code). Maria Baronova was under the accusation of appeals to actively disobey legal demands of the authorities and of appeals to mass rioting.

However, not all participants in the riot case will fall under the amnesty, as some of them are also accused of violence against representatives of the authorities. These are Andrei Barabanov, Stepan Zimin, Denis Lutskevich, Yaroslav Belousov, Artyom Savelov, Sergei Krivov, Alexandra Dukhanina and Alexei Polikhovich.
