Fundraiser announced to pay for Boris Goncharenko’s defence

Activists announced raising money to pay for the services of an advocate for Boris Goncharenko, accused in a case on arson of a military registration and enlistment office in the city of Goryachy Klyuch. In total, it is planned to collect 315,000 roubles.

The “Solidarity Zone” project announced a fundraiser on the “Zaodno” (Together) mutual aid platform, the “Activatika” Telegram channel reports.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on March 19, Boris Goncharenko confessed that he had prepared an incendiary mixture for Bogdan Abdurakhmanov, the second defendant in the criminal case. On April 19, Bogdan Abdurakhmanov confirmed the testimony given by Boris Goncharenko, saying that he was ready to carry out the plan alone. On May 28, Bogdan Abdurakhmanov claimed that he did not give the testimony that was read out earlier, but it had been written by an investigator. Felix Wertegel, an advocate of Boris Goncharenko, explained that the Bogdan Abdurakhmanov’s recantation of his testimony given during the investigation called into question the qualifications of the criminal case.
