Former Georgian Defense Minister Irakli Okruashvili was arrested due to participation in anti-Russian rallies held in Tbilisi on June 20-21.
It is noted that the decision on the arrest was made by the Tbilisi city court.
It is clarified that the court refused the ex-minister to release on bail.
In addition, Okruashvili faces imprisonment of six to nine years.
Anti-Russian actions in the capital of Georgia began due to the fact that during the session of the General Assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Assembly of Orthodoxy (MAP) the Russian delegate Sergei Gavrilov was seated in the chair of the Speaker of the Georgian Parliament.
Earlier it was reported that the ex-Minister of Defense of Georgia was charged.
