Daniel was charged under Article 342 of the Criminal Code (group actions that grossly violate public order). The reason for initiating a case was that on the night of August 9-10, 2020, Daniil, along with his father Vitaly Kolesnikov, went to the city center to the square. They stood there together in a row in the first row, shouting slogans together with other persons. The investigation believes that they obstructed the movement of public transport. Father Daniel Vitaly Kolesnikov was convicted under Art. 339 of the Criminal Code (Hooliganism) and under Art. 172 of the Criminal Code (Involvement of a minor in the commission of a crime) for a fight with a passer-by, which took place in the evening of the same day.
