British BBC reports about a Russian violinist, Andrey Osipov from Cheboksary, who was arrested during an orchestra rehearsal. The arrest came four days after the musician took part in a protest against corruption. He was fined for disobeying policemen who asked him to leave the protest meeting. In a previous court judgment the same musician was found « guilty of shouting the wrong slogans ». In the meeting, Andrey and his fellow protesters asked the Russian Prime Minister to resign.
