Ivan Golunov, a correspondent for the Medusa Investigations Department, was detained on June 6 near Tsvetnoy Boulevard. The police claim that they found drugs, and in his apartment during the search they allegedly found a drug laboratory.
It later turned out that the photos of the drugs were taken elsewhere. Golunov himself and the editors of Meduza believe that the case was falsified and became revenge for his investigation. In defense of Golunov spoke out journalists, musicians, actors, public figures.
On June 11, at 5 pm, Interior Minister Vladimir Kolokoltsev announced that a decision had been made to relieve Ivan Golunov of responsibility. A run in support of the journalist will take place anyway.
