On Thursday, the Babushkin District Court of Moscow sent Yevgeny Myshchenko, a memorial volunteer at the site of the murder of Boris Nemtsov, to a pre-trial detention center for two months. This was reported by the correspondent of “Mediazona” from the courtroom.
Myshchenko was arrested on charges of participation in a terrorist organization. We are talking about the “Freedom of Russia” legion fighting on the side of Ukraine. The activist admitted that he “was in contact with this organization.” At the same time, he claims that some “embedded agent” “played with his feelings” during the correspondence. He did not provide details.
Myshchenko was detained on the evening of September 11 at the people’s memorial at the place of Nemtsov’s murder on Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge. During the detention, as it turned out later, the emu broke three ribs. The remand trial was supposed to take place yesterday, however, after Myshchenko told about the beating during detention, an ambulance was called to the court and the activist was taken to the hospital. An X-ray confirmed the fractures, but on the morning of September 14, he was discharged from the hospital and taken to court again.
- One of the leaders of the Russian opposition, Boris Nemtsov, was killed on the Bolshoi Moskvoretsky Bridge in the center of Moscow in February 2015. Since that day, a spontaneous memorial has been operating at the place of his death – “Nemtsov Bridge”. He is supported and protected around the clock by political associates and opposition activists.
