MOSCOW, January 14 - RAPSI. The Moscow City Court held that Sergei Krivov, a man suspected for his participation in the Bolotnaya Square riots that erupted in downtown Moscow last May, will remain in custody until March 6, thus rejecting Krivov's appeal for release, the court told the Russian Legal Information Agency (RAPSI/ on Monday.

Krivov's attorney Vyacheslav Makarov has stated that he fears for his client's health, as Krivov began a hunger strike over 30 days ago, and has vowed to continue fasting until the court agrees to his release.

"As no one is going to release him, the situation could turn out very badly," he said.

He also stressed that there is no evidence that Krivov has committed a crime.

Clashes with the police flared up on May 6 during an officially sanctioned opposition march in Moscow. Dozens of protesters and police officers were injured. The police detained over 400 rally participants. After May 6, the opposition continued its protests as "people's promenades," as crowds of opposition activists strolled peacefully through the city in a show of opposition.

The Zamoskvoretsky District Court in Moscow has already sentenced Maxim Luzyanin, another suspect in the case, to 4.5 years behind bars. The court is also considering the prosecutors' request to apply compulsory medical measures against suspect Mikhail Kosenko.

Investigative Committee spokesperson Vladimir Markin stated earlier that separate proceedings in the case have been initiated against 12 suspects, who are familiarizing themselves with the case's materials.
