Detained Ukrainian lawmaker released from custody in Moscow

A Ukrainian lawmaker said Sunday he was detained by Russian police ahead of a Moscow march to honour opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, who was gunned down near the Kremlin. The parliamentarian, Alexei Goncharenko, was later released from police custody, but must appear before a tribunal on Monday and could still face detention, his lawyer said. “Police have detained me,” Goncharenko wrote on Facebook. According to a picture posted on Facebook, Goncharenko’s T-shirt carried a printed picture of Nemtsov and said in Ukrainian: “Heroes never die”, similar to a popular slogan used during last year’s pro-Western uprising in Ukraine.
