Checks in Udaltsov's apartment were conducted after the Kremlin-run TV Channel NTV aired a controversial anti-opposition film "Anatomy of protest 2" which, shot with a hidden camera, shows a meeting of a man who is claimed to be Udaltsov with Georgian political officials. During the meeting they discussed different ways to start a revolution in Russia and take power.
"After checking the film, the investigators concluded that the Georgian party in the meeting was represented by the chairman of Georgia's parliamentary committee of defense and security Givi Targamadze, Georgia's consul in Moldova Mikhail Ivashvili and three of their aides. The Russian side was represented by Sergey Udaltsov and two of his supporters, Konstantin Lebedev and Leonid Razvozzhaev," Markin said.
The criminal case against Udaltsov was initiated under the articles 30 and 212 of Russia's Criminal Code, "Preparing mass riots."
The film "Anatomy of protest 2" was aired by NTV on October 5. The authors of the film blamed Russian opposition activists for preparing terrorist actions in Russia and of treason. They also claimed that they were given money by former Bank of Moscow head Andrey Borodin who is now hiding from Russian authorities in London.
After the film was aired, Russia's parliament demanded the investigative committee look into the facts narrated in the film.
