Statement of NGOs on the arrest of Roman Udot

On May 20, 2019 Roman Udot, a council member of “Golos” (Voice) Movement was detained by Moscow police officers. His detention was due to the criminal case opened against him over an incident that happened at Sheremetyevo Airport last March, when he grabbed the telephone of a state-run NTV journalist in response to her inappropriate behavior and pestering him with questions. We, the signatory NGOs of Armenia which observe the elections in Armenia and abroad, consider the persecutions against Udot and threats against his family members impermissible. By joining the statement made by Golos observation movement we call on the government of the Russian Federation and law enforcement bodies to immediately release Roman Udot and leave groundless charges against him.
