Two ecologists detained in Krasnodar

Oleg Desyatov, an activist of the "Ecological Watch for Northern Caucasus" (EcoWatch), and a female volunteer of the "Greenpeace" were detained during a search carried out on April 14 in an apartment of Pavel Suganeev, a resident of Krasnodar and a member of the "EcoWatch". This was reported by Alexei Avanesyan, an advocate of Pavel Suganeyev.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that in the morning of April 14, Andrei Rudomakha, a coordinator of the "EcoWatch", reported that the police were carrying out a search in an apartment of one of the members of the "EcoWatch" in Krasnodar. Dmitry Shevchenko, the deputy coordinator of the "EcoWatch", associates the search with the case of defamation with regard to Alexander Remezkov, the former Deputy Governor of Kuban.

On April 14, Pavel Suganeev, who rented a house in Krasnodar, found there a mess and a broken safe. According to him, some things were seized from the house, including a PC. This was reported by the advocate. "Policemen who arrived by the call explained that the house was searched in the criminal case," said the advocate. Meanwhile, Alexei Avanesyan did not confirm the information about the broken door reported earlier.

According to Alexei Avanesyan, Oleg Desyatov, an activist of the "EcoWatch", and Diana, a volunteer of the "Greenpeace", who stayed in the house during the search, were brought for questioning to the Investigating Department for the KrasnodarTerritory.
