Case against a rally participant on Kadyrov Bridge in Saint Petersburg closed
The administrative case against a 17-year-old coordinator of the art group "Vesna" (Spring), who in November participated in hanging out a banner on the Akhmat Kadyrov Bridge in Saint Petersburg, has been closed.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on November 28, activists unfolded a banner on the Akhmat Kadyrov bridge in Saint Petersburg: "It belongs to Ingushetia." They explained that they had "transferred" to Ingushetia a bridge in exchange for the lands transferred to Chechnya. On November 28, law enforcers detained the coordinator of the art group "Vesna". He was accused of violating the rules of holding the event, the "OVD-Info" reports with reference to Maxim Olenichev, a lawyer of the "Team 29".
According to the young man himself, the commission did not find any elements of crime in his actions. It was also important that the police did not detain the protesters, and no complaints about them were received. Besides, the records from surveillance cameras showed that the young people did not disturb passers-by, the young man told the "Fontanka".
