Ural “Pokemon Catcher” was transferred to jail
Sokolovsky was placed in custody after a visit to him by his bride, who violated the terms of the blogger’s house arrest.
“Today it became known that another criminal case has been initiated against Sokolovsky – about the illegal circulation of special technical means intended for secretly obtaining information (part 1 of Article 138 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). The reason was a pen with a video camera discovered during a house search,” said the defender.
