Riot Suspect Released

One of the suspects in the Bolotnaya Ploshchad riot case has been released on the condition that he doesn't leave town, investigators said Tuesday.

Fyodor Bakhov, born in 1981, was detained in June and charged with taking part in a riot at the May 6 opposition rally. He was released on Tuesday because he was deemed to not be a flight risk.

The accused "has permanent residence in Moscow, has a regular job and a child," the Investigative Committee said in a statement.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
