Ilya Yashin was arrested for 15 days

The Khamovnichesky District Court of Moscow has arrested politician Ilya Yashin for 15 days on charges of "disobedience to the police," journalist Irina Babloyan reports on her Telegram channel.

Yashin himself stated that the report on him was compiled by police sniper Alexei Mitrofankin, who claims that Yashin "grabbed him by the uniform, dirtyly insulted him and pushed him away with his hands." “I read the report and I myself am surprised at what a scumbag I turn out to be,” the politician said.

Yashin is sure that the current arrest is another attempt to "squeeze" him out of the country.

“Obviously, such a brazen and demonstratively illegal detention is another hint. Like: “Well, why are you so slow-witted, guy? Leave the country! How else can I explain it to you?“ I will repeat it again. Yes, I'm clueless. No, I will not leave my country anywhere, ”wrote Yashin.

On the evening of June 27, Yashin was detained in a park in Khamovniki. This was reported by journalist Irina Babloyan in her Telegram channel.

“Walked with my friend Ilya Yashin in the park, in Khamovniki. The police came up and took Ilya to no one knows where, ”she wrote, posting a photo in which the politician was being detained. Babloyan claims that there was no "disobedience to the police" at the time of the arrest. She confirmed this in court.
