Pardoned by the president of the Russian Federation Sergey Mokhnatkin was released. Let's remind, he was arrested on December 31, 2009. Mokhnatkin received a term for the presence on the meeting of opposition in protection of a freedom of assembly on December 31, 2009 on Triumfalnaya Square. According to the version of defence which was confirmed by other participants of the action, Mokhnatkin had no relation to opposition. He simply went by, saw how militiamen dragged a woman to the paddywagon, stood up for her and was himself detained. According to the charge version, in the bus he hit the sergeant of militia Moiseyev in the head, having broken his nose. Mokhnatkin argues that the militiaman gripped him by the throat, it is very similar to the truth - practice of torment buses is widely known.
