“The investigators asked about my conviction and asked what I had done on November 6. I was in the Maskouski district police department at the moment of the attack on the Lithuanian embassy.

“A policeman came to the detention centre on November 7 to hear my explanations regarding the attack on the Lithuanian embassy, but I refused to talk to him because I knew nothing about the incident. I later read on the Internet what had happened.”
