With new charges against him to be presented today in court
A leader of Kharkiv separatists who had been released on bail for UAH 200,000 (USD 8,000) was arrested at the Ukrainian border while trying to escape to Russia.
For more than 2 years, Yegor Logvinov has been on trial concerning his participation in the seizure of Kharkiv region administration in April 2014 and the preparation of a referendum on Ukraine's federalization.
He wanted to flee to Russia the next day after he was bailed. Now, the Kharkiv regional prosecutor has delivered the convict with new charges: trying to change the constitutional orders and seize power.
Today, a court will decide on pre-trial measures and the case of illegally crossing the border.
Oleksandr Trokhymets, press officer of the Kharkiv Border Detachment: He has been transported to court and they will decide. Primarily, he can be detained for 3 years for violating the court ruling about his bail.
