Today, imprisoned Voina protest artist Oleg Vorotnikov has been granted bail of $10,300 due to the prolonged nature of the pre-trial. He has been judged unlikely to skip out on bail. Leonid Nikolaev’s hearing is tomorrow.
Within 10 days, Oleg will be free after more than three months since his sloppy, possibly illegal arrest. This may be a victory for now, but whether Oleg and Leonid will return to jail for seven years – if their anti-corruption art action is judged as a hate crime against cops – will be determined at a later court date.
