MOSCOW, February 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Supreme Court is due early next month to consider an appeal against the verdict to Russian opposition figures Sergey Udaltsov and Leonid Razvozzhayev, a lawyer said on Monday.
"The court session into the petition of appeal against the verdict has been preliminary scheduled for March 4," the lawyer of Razvozzhayev, Dmitry Agranovsky, told TASS.
In its complaint, the defense team asks the court to overturn the sentence and acquit the clients. Agranovsky said that the health state of Razvozzhaev has been deteriorating of late.
In July last year, the Moscow City Court found that Left Front coordinator Udaltsov and Razvozzhayev, a former State Duma deputy’s aide, were guilty of organizing mass disorders in Moscow in May 2012 and attempting to stage mass disorders across the country. Both men were sentenced to four years and six months in prison.
