Over 400 people were arrested and scores injured in the Bolotnaya Square protest that turned violent on the eve of Vladimir Putin's inauguration to a third presidential term in May 2012. Dozens were later charged with inciting mass riots and using violence against law enforcement officers. Prosecutors have demanded to find eight remaining defendants in the 2012 Bolotnaya riots case guilty of participating in the riots and assaulting the police.
