Russian Opposition Activist Placed Under House Arrest Over Protest Rally

One of Russia's opposition leaders, Sergey Udaltsov, has been placed under house arrest inciting violence during anti-government rally in May 2012.

      Udaltsov must stay at his home until April 6, and he is also prohibited to use the telephone or Internet and only allowed to speak to his family, lawyers, or investigators.

      According to investigator Rustam Gabdullin, the opposition activist has given testimony confirming his role in attempting to organize mass disorder.

      Sergey Udaltsov is the leader of the Left Front movement, a communist linked organization. He rose to prominence during the mass demonstrations against alleged vote fraud, and still is concidered to be one of the most active and radical leaders of the Russian opposition movement. Udaltsov is currently charged in a separate case with plotting mass disorder and faces up to ten years behind bars if convicted.
