From penal colony №1 of the Yaroslavl region released one of the defendants in the “Bolotnaya case” Dmitry Echevsky, reports “OVD-info” on Wednesday, July 26.
In October 2014, the Zamoskvoretsky court sentenced him to three years and two months in prison for participation in mass riots and using violence towards the police. Later the Moscow city court left the sentence unchanged.
In proceedings Echevsky admitted his guilt and agreed to have his case considered in a special manner, that is, without examining the evidence.
In the same Yaroslavl colony continues to serve time another “bog”, Ivan the forgetful. In April 2017, he was sent to a punishment cell for disobedience to employees of a colony. This occurred, presumably, after together with two other prisoners, he informed the lawyer that they were beaten by the special forces of the Federal penitentiary service.
May 6, 2012 many thousands protest action on Bolotnaya square turned into clashes with police. Russia’s investigative Committee has described the incident as riots. In December 2013 in the framework of the declared state Duma Amnesty on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the Constitution of Russia released more than a dozen rioters were in jail.
