Extremism is not found: the Prosecutor’s office allowed Gelman to wait for a Palace coup

Gallery owner and political consultant Marat Guelman posted on his Facebook letter to prosecutors, according to which his hopes on a Palace coup in Russia, which could lead to a change of the current government, can not be considered extremism.

Recall that in June 2015 at the Ukrainian site “New times” published an article of Marat Gelman’s “one step Russia to hell.” In it he said, commenting on Russia’s refusal of the primacy of international law, said that the negative trends in the country’s life — the struggle with dissent, the search for external and internal enemies — a long established. In his opinion, Russia has remained the only chance for change: “successful Palace coup.”

The article ended with a question to the participants of the next St. Petersburg international economic forum, if there are any potential conspirators.

The text has displeased two deputies of the state Duma from the CPRF Valery Rashkin and Sergei Obukhov. They wrote a request to the Prosecutor General with the requirement to check Gelman’s article “public calls to extremist activities”.

In an interview with the newspaper “Izvestia” Raskin then said Gelman “calls on the Russophobic crowd, in fact, to the coup in the hope to put an end to Russian history”.

However, now the gallery received a reply from the Prosecutor’s office, according to which signs of extremism in the text does not appear: “I can now come quietly to Moscow”, he concluded (the last time Gelman lives in Montenegro). Attorneys of Gelman were Dmitry Dinze and Pavel Chikov, the first previously successfully defended in court artist Pyotr Pavlensky.

Recall that the theme of a Palace coup was discussed in Russia after the statement of Mikhail Khodorkovsky about what he is counting on a “soft” regime change in the result of such conspiracy. Vladimir Putin, responding to a question whether he feared such a scenario, said a Palace coup in the country is impossible as the power it has palaces.
