Russian Opposition Leader May Face 'Treason' Claims

On Monday, Russian opposition activist Sergei Udaltsov was summoned by investigators after an aired documentary film showed him as a violent revolutions supporter.

      The summons came less than 72 hours after state-run television NTV channel had broadcasted the "Protest Anatomy 2" film, which included so-called secretly-filmed footage of Udaltsov meeting leading Georgian politician Givi Targamadze to discuss plans to seize power in cities across Russia, including the Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad. The low quality video showed two men discussing some payments over protest actions in Russia.

      The maximum custodial sentence for state treason in Russia is twenty years.

      “I have nothing to hide. I didn’t engage in a conspiracy to seize power in Kaliningrad, or anywhere else," Sergei Udaltsov told the press. He was supported by Russia’s Communist Party, which also believe the footage was fake. Targamadze, the head of Georgian parliament’s defense, also slammed the documentary saying he had never met Udaltsov before.
