The detainee caught at the Moscow memorial event dedicated to “Heavenly Hundred” appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office.

The Ekaterinburg activist Rustam Mustafin detained at the Moscow memorial event dedicated to “Heavenly Hundred” on February 20 appealed to the Prosecutor’s Office concerning the illegal actions of the police. This was reported on Tuesday, February 24 by the project’s site Copwatch.

As Copwatch reports with the reference to the activist’s words, the police officers approached him in Leontyevsky Lane asking him not to hinder the pedestrians. After he stepped aside, he was arrested and taken to a police van, without explaining the reasons for detention. Later Mustafin and seven other activists were brought to the “Presnenskiy” police department.

Finally he and Pavel Kuznetsov were released in the late evening, without any protocol being drawn up. One more activist was released earlier with the protocol by Part 5 of Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code – “violation of the established order of meetings, rallies, demonstrations, marches and pickets by a participant of a public event”.

Five other activists spent a night in the department and were released on February 21 with the protocols by Part 1 of Article 19.3 of the Administrative Code – “insubordination to a lawful demand of a police officer”. In the evening of February 20 they all came to the building of the Ukrainian Embassy in Moscow to lay flowers in the memory of the “Heavenly Hundred” - people killed during the protests in Kiev from 18 to 21 February 2014.

The roadway in front of the embassy was fenced. The activists asked to let them in so that they could lay flowers, after which the police said that “the citizens were on the roadway” and immediately detained them.

About forty opponents of Maidan also stood near the Ukrainian embassy that evening, and the police did not detain them.
