Investigative Committee releases Bolotnaya Square riots suspect
MOSCOW, November 6 - RAPSI. Fedor Bakhov, who is a suspect in the Bolotnaya Square riots case, will be released on his own recognizance, the Investigative Committee has reported on Tuesday.
"As the main investigative actions have already been taken with Bakhov and because he lives in Moscow, is employed, and is raising an underaged child, investigators have decided to release him on his own recognizance as soon as his custody term expires," the committee said.
Bakhov was detained in June 2012. He was charged with participating in mass riots and faces imprisonment.
Clashes with the police flared up on May 6 during an officially sanctioned opposition march across Moscow. Dozens of protesters and police officers were injured. The police detained over 400 rally participants. After May 6, the opposition continued its protests in the form of "people's promenades," wherein crowds of opposition activists strolled peacefully through the city in a show of opposition.
