RUSSIAN CITIZENS DETAINED IN LATVIA FACE LIFE SENTENCES

The Riga procurator’s office has brought a lawsuit against two more nationalist Bolsheviks, Sergei Solovei and Maksim Zhurkin. They are being accused of terrorism and illegal border crossing. The same accusation had been brought earlier against Dmitri Gafarov. The all three Russian citizens were arrested at the inspection gallery of the St. Peter’s church where they for two hours were waving red flags and threatened to blow themselves up if their demands were not met. The Russian nationals are now facing 15-20 years in prison or a life sentence, IMA-press reports.
