Anti-fascist Alexey Olesinov released pending trial in Moscow (Russia)

On the 7th of June, anti-fascist Alexey “Shkobar” Olesinov was released pending trial. The Moscow city court made a decision on appeal against his detention, filed by Olesinov’s lawyer Svetlana Sidorkina. The court released Olesinov, as the most serious charges against him (causing grievous bodily harm, statute 111 of the Russian criminal codex) were dropped in late May.

The lawyer of Olesinov said that the police investigator responsible did not even appear in the court.

The release of Olesinov means that it is highly likely that his co-defendant Alexey Sutuga will be released as well. However, unlike Olesinov, Sutuga has no permanent registration in the Moscow region, which means that it is highly likely that a bail of up to one million rubles (50,000 euros) will be demanded.
