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.
