Ruslan Gvashev declared his categorical disagreement with the judgement and appealed against it at the Krasnodar Territorial Court.

This Court appointed the consideration of Mr Gvashev's complaint at 10:30 a.m. Moscow time on July 19, as Ruslan Gvashev had himself reported. He also stated that "he will surely personally participate in the court session." "For me it is of principle to defend the right to prayer for those ancestors, who tragically perished in that bloody war," the "Kavkaz. Realii" quoted him as saying.

According to Marina Dubrovina, today she met Ruslan Gvashev, her client. Gvashev "was with his friends and relatives and was very anxious before the court session." Later, he felt bad and was hospitalized with a suspicion of a heart attack, Ms Dubrovina told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
