Moscow Court Prolongs Razvozzhayev's Pretrial Arrest
Russian Opposition Figures ChargedSergei Udaltsov, who is the coordinator of the Left Front movement, and Leonid Razvozzhayev, a Russian opposition lawmaker's aide, are officially charged with the preparation and the organization of mass unrest.
Leonid Razvozzhayev, along with the coordinator of the opposition Left Front movement, Sergei Udaltsov, was charged with preparation and organization of a mass antigovernment protest on Moscow's Bolotnaya Square in May 2012.
Investigators say the protest was orchestrated by a Georgian politician.
Razvozzhayev, who denies the charge, was ordered to leave the courtroom on September 30 after he argued loudly with the judge.
Further prolongation of Razvozzhayev's pretrial arrest can now be decided only by the Moscow City Court, as October 21 will mark one year since his arrest.
Two participants in the Bolotnaya protest have pleaded guilty and made a deal with investigators. The trial of 12 other participants is under way.
