Navalny's supporters released from police in Astrakhan

In Astrakhan, policemen have released Alexei Navalny's supporters after drawing up a confiscation protocol of leaflets, Alexander Kogut, the head of the local Navalny's office, has stated.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that today three employees of the office were detained while disseminating information leaflets in the Bratsk Garden. They were taken to the Kirov ROVD (District Interior Division) of Astrakhan and accused under Article 5.10 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of Russia (electoral campaigning in forbidden places).

In their explanations written at the ROVD, the activists stated that they took leaflets at the office; the leaflets narrate about the planned boycott of the upcoming presidential election in Russia, and why one should not go to the polls. Policemen did not draft any protocols on their administrative offence, Mr Kogut told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent.
