“Medusa” found out who broke her leg designer Konstantin Konovalov, whom police detained on July 27, three hours before the start of the protest in Moscow. According to the newspaper, this man is a policeman Alexander Zhuravlev. “Medusa” came to the conclusion based on the study of social networks, photographs and eyewitness accounts.
The police have identified in connection with another incident: on Zhuravlev said the investigative group Conflict Intelligence Team Ruslan Leviev, who said that the police was going to hit on the head by a participant of the protest action, but was dissuaded by a colleague.

He subscribed to a public kind of “Police of Russia” and “Overheard the police”, and although pictures in uniform in the account is not (or at the time of archiving have been removed — “Medusa”), the surviving family photos in the account Zhuravleva and his wife, we can conclude that he and a policeman who stands at the foot of Constantine Konovalov, is one and the same person.

He Lights on the same court said: “Detention is not motivated by the fact that I was present on the Pipe area, and my political stance on non-cooperation with the municipality”.
The police officer that was in the picture with the detention of Konstantin Konovalov is on the foot of the designer, on the same day, July 27, appeared in another video where he urges citizens to leave (at this point, Tver was already closed).
