MOSCOW, August 28 (RAPSI) - Moscow’s Tagansky District Court on Thursday ordered the detention of Vladimir Podrezov and Kirill Ishutin, who face hooliganism charges for the alleged placing of Ukrainian flag on the spire of the city's skyscraper, RAPSI reports from the courtroom.

The court ruled to keep Podrezov in detention until October 19, while Ishutin got two months.

On August 20, a Ukrainian flag was spotted on the spire of the skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya Embankment in central Moscow. The Soviet star on the spire was painted blue and yellow, the national colors of Ukraine.

A group of young people with special climbing equipment was detained in the aftermath of the incident.

Alexander Shirokozhukh, Alexander Pogrebov, Yevgenia Korotkova and Anna Lepyoshkina were placed under house arrest until October 19. They are forbidden to use telephones and other means of communication other than in a medical, police or other emergency.

The young men have been charged with hooliganism. They face up to seven years in prison if convicted.

Ishutin also stands accused of drugs possession and faces up to ten yeras in prison.

The suspects have pleaded not guilty. They said they were jumping from the building with parachutes when someone else painted the star and hoisted a Ukrainian flat on its spire.

Moscow police are checking the information that Ukrainian roofer nicknamed Grisha Mustang Wanted claims to be involved in the incident.
