Vakhtang Ezugbaya's acquaintances consider that his arrest is connected with other events. "He has rather sharp materials" — the member of "Ecological watch across the North Caucasus" Sofya Rusova Vakhtang Ezugbaya has told Business FM. Photo: VKontakte of the Ecoblogger Vakhtang Ezugbaya have arrested for five days after attempt to ask a question to the mayor of Sochi when that walked on the embankment accompanied by protection. Ezugbaya has shot the events with phone and has laid out in network. For several days the roller has collected more than 70 thousand viewings. On shots it is visible how the Sochi city's mayor Anatoly Pakhomov passes in several meters and after a polite request removing at first calls up the Cossack and demands to detain the applicant, and then rudely advises him to go to Abkhazia and there to ask the questions. In reply the citizen of Russia Ezugbaya laughs and advises Pakhomov in that case to go to Anapa which mayor that was earlier. Incident with mayor walk has occurred on October 2. On October 4 Ezugbaya was called on a conversation in police. There have made the protocol on disorderly conduct and, without having allowed neither to call the lawyer, nor to notify the family, have carried him to the Central district court of Sochi. There the blogger was accused of disrespectful behavior in the administration building on September 22. That day he has come there to reception together with mother and has already not for the first time asked officials to settle rooms in the hostel where he lives and 15 more people. To Vakhtang have forbidden to film a meeting, and after refusal together with the elderly woman have pushed out on the street. Officials insist that Ezugbaya is guilty itself — allegedly talked obscenely. However those who know him personally doubt charge and consider that the events have other background. Here that the journalist, the member of "Ecological watch across the North Caucasus" Sofya Rusova has told Business FM: "In Sochi after have put in the pre-trial detention center of the editor-in-chief large media "Blog Sochi" by Alexander Valov, there were practically no platforms, there were no bloggers and journalists who are capable to ask sensitive issues to the power. And Vakhtang actively keeps several months the video blog, comes to public hearings, communicates with officials not only concerning housing, but also, for example, about illegal extraction of gravel in the river of Sochi which is a drinking source of all region. He has rather sharp materials. This my personal subjective opinion that most of all it is material concerning the river of Sochi: there illegal works are conducted, and Vakhtang has got there and has made big material. As far as I understand, there had to be a check after this material. And the second — that he has tried to ask a question to the mayor". According to Rusova, the arrested journalist intends to appeal against validity of actions in his relation in the Krasnodar regional court. But even if the court of the highest authority will pass other decision, the term of arrest will already end. To add BFM.ru to your sources of news?
