The defense requests Tagansky court of Moscow to return the case to the Prosecutor's office 4 based jumpers who jumped from the roof of the skyscraper on Kotelnicheskaya embankment in the day when the star on the spire of the building is painted in colors of Ukrainian flag, said to the correspondent lawyer Valery Lavrov.
High-profile incident occurred on 20 August last year. By assumption of the investigation, the defendants hung Ukrainian flag on the spire of a tall building. They also managed to paint half stars, crowning the building in blue color. Now the star returned to its original form.
Tuesday Tagansky court of Moscow has started consideration of the case. On the bench of the accused are five people: based jumpers Anna Lepeshkina, Alexander Cellars, Alexey Shirokogorov, Evgenia Korotkova and Roper St. Petersburg Vladimir undercutting. The result imposes on them two articles of the criminal code. Defendants threaten real prison terms.
Responsible for painting the stars took on their own shoulders the Ukrainian rufer Pavel Usever, famous named Grisha Mustang. He posted to the world wide web a picture is on some of the colored rays of the star with the flag of Ukraine. The result achieved extramural punishment for his detention and stated in the investigation, But Ukraine did not want to give rufer.
"The indictment is composed of very vague, We can't defend ourselves from the abstract of charges. We asked the court to remand the case to the Prosecutor that the Indictment rewrote and pointed out how our clients could have jumped to destabilize the situation in the capital of Russia and provoke strong resentment, " said Lavrov.
He added that all based jumpers " absolutely apolitical citizens, who just happened to be in the wrong place at that moment."" The investigation considers that a star painted Ukrainian rufer, and our defendants jumped from the roof to attract attention to his campaign. But they failed to link him with the Mustang - no detail talk on the phone or by localization. On their clothes even no traces of paint, " added the lawyer.
