He has been condemned in absentia as he has left Russia and has located in Lithuania. His younger brother considers that by means of business of the power have got rid of "the bright leader of opposition" of the Photo: Alexander Shalgin/press-sluzhba the State Dumas of Russian Federation/TASS has sentenced on September 12 the Kirov district court of Rostov-on-Don to three years of imprisonment of the former deputy from the CPRF Vladimir Bessonov for a fight with police officers on a meeting in 2011. The sentence has been pronounced in absentia: the former people's deputy in anticipation of process has left the country and has located in Lithuania. The convict didn't begin to comment on the judgment, having referred to what is afraid of adverse effects for itself. In turn, his younger brother, the head of CPRF faction in Legislative assembly of the Rostov region Evgeny Bessonov called a sentence "the low decision of ruling party". He considers that by means of criminal case of his brother "have thrown out" from political life of the country more than for 20 years. According to case papers, on December 2, 2011 the deputy from the CPRF Vladimir Bessonov has organized the meeting numbering more than 100 people which isn't coordinated with the authorities in Rostov-on-Don. The action took place on the square in front of the residence of the plenipotentiary of the president of the country in the Southern Federal District. Because local authorities haven't allowed to hold demonstrations, police officers have demanded going to disperse. However Bessonov and his colleagues have refused the requirement of law enforcement officers. Then law enforcement officers have decided to switch-off independently the equipment of activists that has caused indignation of protesters therefore a fight has begun.

After a while there has arrived the chief of local police and has again made an attempt to switch off columns. But Bessonov began to push away also him and has hit the police officer on a face. To video with a fight it is available also on YouTube. Bessonov called the business custom earlier. When in July, 2012 the State Duma deprived him of parliamentary immunity (without it the Investigative Committee couldn't bring criminal case as deputies are persons with special legal status), he has made a speech at a meeting. Then the parliamentarian has said that he beat nobody. According to the politician, during the meeting the police behaved aggressively, and he, on the contrary, during an action called the audience: "We stand quietly, we don't react to provocations". He insisted that the action didn't demand coordination as it was the meeting of voters with deputies. "It is created
