10 minutes before the start of the announcement of the verdict, a participant in the action in the uniform of a policeman came out on the steps of the court. He was holding a dummy with the inscriptions "censorship", "truth", "freedom", Pussy Riot and others, writes Kommersant.
For a few minutes the citizen read a verse.
As soon as police officers approached him, he cut the mannequin's neck with a clerical knife, and a red liquid flowed from the cut. At the same time, someone from the crowd sprayed pink powder.
The protester was detained, others started shouting "Freedom for political prisoners". After that, two more were detained.
Let us recall that the defendants in the New Greatness case are accused of creating an extremist organization with the aim of overthrowing the government. They claim to be innocent.
Earlier, representatives of the public movement "March of Mothers" published an appeal with a request to those who are not indifferent to come to the courthouse on August 6, where they will pass a verdict in this case.
