Boris Kagarlitsky, a co-founder of the Left Front movement, said Wednesday that investigators had raided his home in connection with violent clashes with police at a May 6 opposition protest on Moscow's Bolotnaya Ploshchad.

"I am attending a seminar in Berlin, but my house is being searched in connection with the Bolotnaya case. They couldn't have waited?" Kagarlitsky wrote on Twitter. Nineteen suspects are facing charges over violence at the protest.

Kagarlitsky, a prominent sociologist and left-wing political activist, also heads the Institute of Globalization and Social Movements and writes an opinion column for The Moscow Times.
