Chairman of "Adyge-Khase" of Krasnodar Territory put behind bars

The court has ruled to place Asker Sokht, the head of the public organization "Adyge-Khase" of the Krasnodar Territory, into custody for eight days, users of social networks report. No official confirmation of this information has arrived.

Let us remind you that Asker Sokht was detained on February 14 in Krasnodar on charges of hooliganism; the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was informed about it by Circassian activists. Now, the edition "Natpress" reports that the court ruled to arrest Sokht for eight days.

As reported by Arthur Priymak, a Facebook user, Asker Sokht "was awarded with eight days of arrest" for "resisting the police" and charged with Article 282 of the Russian Criminal Code (incitement of hatred or enmity, and humiliation of human dignity).

"He was always loyal to the Russian authorities; he hated any separatism and extremism. He welcomed the Olympics and even defended Alexander Tkachov," writes Priymak.

"It's an act of intimidation", the user of the social network under the nickname "Night Traveller" gave his comment to the arrest of Asker Sokht.
