“Two people are charged with the damage to the property,” he said. One of them is accused of arson of a security guard post, the second one is charged with staging an installation in the shape of rainbow. The prosecutor noted that these cases cannot be tried in the accelerated way as those cases related with hooliganism and will be tried at a conventional trial.

On Thursday, the prosecutor’s office is to rule to bring accusations against two more hooligans, who were detained for hurling flayers, petards and bottles on the territory of the Russian embassy.
