MOSCOW, July 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Oral statements of the parties will be made in the Moscow City Court on Monday within the case of co-ordinator of the Left Front movement Sergei Udaltsov and aide to a member of the State Duma lower house of RF parliament Leonid Razvozzhayev.
During the argument hearings the parties will express their views on the defendants’ guilt, the prosecutors will request punishment and the lawyers will try to convince the panel of judges to acquit their defendants.
The criminal case against Udaltsov and Razvozzhayev - over the preparation for the organisation of mass riots in various Russian regions - was opened after checking the materials in the film “Anatomy of a Protest-2” that was shown on NTV television and that contained materials about a meeting of Russian oppositionists with Georgian politician Givi Targamadze.
According to investigators, these meetings focused on discussing the plans to organise mass riots. The coordinator of the Left Front and Duma MP aide were the initiators of the plans, and Targamadze provided the financing.
According to the case materials, 85 people are aggrieved persons in the case and it comprises 90 volumes.
Udaltsov is under house arrest, and Razvozzhayev is under arrest. They are facing punishment of up to 10 years in prison. They have not admitted their guilt.
