Mark Feygin says authorities do not take kindly to his Twitter account
Nadiya Savchenko's lawyer Mark Feygin is being checked for extremism.
"There's yet another appeal to prosecute me for extremism. For my Twitter," Feygin tweeted. The lawyer promised to share the details later.
"A detective from the Department of Internal Affairs in the Moscow's district of Khamovniki said that some man named Schukin had accused me of extremism," Feygin said.

Earlier, Feygin published an open letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin, where he had asked to release Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia. This resulted in his Facebook account being blocked.
In particular, the lawyer wrote in a letter that the Ukrainians were forcibly transferred to Russia, arrested and prosecuted for political reasons.
