MOSCOW, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Two Russian opposition activists accused of planning riots in the country have denied wrongdoing at the trial.

"Of course I deny the charges. I believe they're absurd," lawmaker's aide Leonid Razvozzhayev told judge Alexander Zamashnyuk at the hearing on the merit that began on Tuesday.

For his part, Udaltsov said he flatly denied the investigator’s arguments.
