The court arrested a former deputy coordinator of Navalny’s headquarters in Kostroma Alexander Zykov for 15 days under Article 20.25 of the Code of the Administrative Offences of Russia ("Willful departure from the place of serving an administrative arrest").
According to Zykov’s Facebook, he was served a summons to the magistrate court on April 30. Zykov decided not to attend it.
"They want to make unlawful arrest again, and it will definitely happen, if I'm present. The arrest will be recognized illegal in the future, as previously, but the puppet Kostroma courts will do it only after the rally of May 5," Zykov wrote on April 30.
Police officers established his location, detained him and brought to court. According to Zykov, in court he provided a certificate that he could not perform compulsory works for health reasons. But the judge did not make allowance and arrested him.
"I will not be able to join the rally, but you have to, if you do not want political arrests to continue, if you do not want to see any Yemets in power [Viktor Yemets — head of the Kostroma administration] and Putin!" Zykov wrote in the social network.
On June 11, 2017 police detained deputy coordinator of the Kostroma Navalny's headquarters Alexander Zykov for using agitation cube during a coordinated picket. The court fined him for a lack of the organizer's badge.
In October, Zykov was fined 200,000 rubles for participation in an uncoordinated procession.
On January 31, Alexander Zykov was detained at the exit from the Kostroma Navalny's headquarters and taken to the police station. For violation of the law on rallies, the court appointed him 120 hours of compulsory work. On April 11, he was arrested for two days for violating the rules of serving compulsory work. On April 13, Zykov was sentenced to a 15-day arrest for the same offense. On April 18, the Krasnoselsky District Court canceled the arrest because Zykov's lawyer was not allowed to attend the trial.
