MOSCOW, March 2. /TASS/. The member of Ukraine's parliament, Alexey Goncharenko, has come back home after his detention by Moscow’s police during the mourning march on Sunday in memory of murdered Russian politician Boris Nemtsov.
"Today, Goncharenko has flown back to Ukraine and probably now his plane has landed," lawyer Mark Feygin said.
The lawyer also said a complaint is soon to be filed with prosecutors for the illegal detention in Russia of Goncharenko who enjoys diplomatic immunity.
Goncharenko was released on Sunday after spending several hours at the Moscow police station.
The Ukrainian lawmaker had been detained for disobeying a police officer and was issued a protocol on an administrative offence. Goncharenko later claimed that he had received bodily injuries and was provided with no medical assistance at the police department.
Moscow’s police told journalists on Monday that following these "ungrounded statements" made by Goncharenko they decided to unveil a video recording of him being kept in detention.
Police confirmed that they had no claims against Goncharenko and he could leave Russia’s territory.
The march in memory of Nemtsov, 55, who was killed by several shots in the back in downtown Moscow overnight to Saturday, was attended by around 21,000 people, police said. Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said the murder was a provocation.
