Pro-Russian participants in the tragic events of May 2, 2014 in Odesa, Sergiy Dolzhenkov (Captain Cocoa) and Evgeniy Mefedov (citizen of the Russian Federation) may be released.

Today the Central District Court of Mykolaiv assigned them a bail of 153 thousand UAH each, in the case of which they will be released from the pre-trial detention center.

Two years ago, the Illichivsk city court acquitted Dolzhenkov and Mefedov in the “May 2 case” about the riots in Odesa, but the SSU immediately made them defendants in another case – about the events of March 28, 2014 in Mykolaiv. Then the organization “Odesa squad”, of which they are members, came to this city and held an action during which the flags of the Russian Federation, the Russian Empire, the Russian Navy, St. George’s ribbons were displayed and pro-Russian slogans were shouted out.
