On 22 October 2012, the BBC reported that a video published on the LifeNews.ru website showed a man - apparently Mr Leonid Razvozzhayev - being escorted by police and shouting to reporters: "Tell everyone that they tortured me. For two days. They smuggled me in from Ukraine." Russian investigators say anti-Kremlin activist Mr Razvozzhayev has been detained and has admitted trying to foment riots with funding from a Georgian MP.
