Two Russian citizens detained in Latvia under espionage and terrorism charges for penetrating the Adazi military base were released from custody by the Riga Vidzeme District Court, Tuesday. Andrei Popko and Alexander Kurkin, both activists from the 'Other Russia' party, penetrated the military base in June carrying a banner of the colours of the St. George flag and were charged by security police with espionage and attempting to commit terrorist acts, for which they faced up to 20 years in prison. In September the charges were changed to hooliganism with a maximum sentence of fines, compulsory work or imprisonment for up to five years. They didn't use any 'Gestapo-style' methods and they didn't force us into anything, but they gave us gentle hints that we should testify against some people who are thought to help us in Latvia," stated Popko, adding that "they wanted to connect us to local opposition and they wanted us to testify against them. That was the only pressure."
