Voina Artist Oleg Vorotnikov Arrested Again?

07.25.11 Marina Galperina

Voina’s Oleg Vorotnikov has been reportedly arrested days after the Russian courts confiscated his Banksy-donated bail and issued international arrest warrant for the artist.

Last we spoke, the whole crew has been in hiding and/or exile. Before this latest alleged arrest, Voina members have been avoiding court, but considering their violent nature of their interactions with authorities and the possible seven year sentence for radical performance art (“anti-cop hate crime,”) who would blame them?

Coincidentally, Livejournal — Russia’s main blogging hub and Voina blog host — was down this morning, delaying any posts that would confirm the arrest. Stay tuned.
