One more provocation against Maxim Reznik, leader of St.Petersburg branch of YABLOKO

Press Release
February 17, 2010

On February 17 (about 7 a.m.) Olga Galkina, deputy of the municipal council of the Morskoi district from the YABLOKO party found out leaflets on the block of flats where she lived running that police was allegedly looking for a "dangerous criminal Maxim Lvovich Reznik accused of grave crimes". It should be also noted that mother and grandmother of Maxim Reznik live in this block of flats, and Maxim is registered here albeit he lives with his wife in another address. The leaflets also called the citizens to call the telephone numbers indicated in the text so that to help the police to arrest a dangerous criminal. The given telephone numbers turned out to be the numbers of the local police department, St.Petersburgs YABLOKO office and the school where Maxim works as a teacher of history. Later Reznik found out that such leaflets also had been posted in the yard of the block of flats where he lived with his wife.

It is obvious that this mean action has been paid for and is aiming at exerting psychological pressure on myself and my relatives. It is especially mean that these people indicated telephone number of the school where I work, Reznik said. After todays provocation I can not say that the December and January incidents [when Reznik was arrested by police when he was going home from a supermarket for alleged drinking alcohol in a public place and attack on their family car] were a mere coincidence.
