Olga Kudrina, an activist of National – Bolshevist Party, which is banned in Russia, has received a refugee status in Ukraine, reports “Eho Moskvy” radio station, referring to the press service of “Drugaya Rossia” oppositional coalition.

      O. Kudrina, together with other national Bolshevik Evgeniy Logovskiy, hung an anti-governmental banner at the front of “Russia” hotel in Moscow in May 2005. The criminal case was brought against them. O. Kudrina was sentenced to 3.5 years of imprisonment a year later, but she did not attend the trial and escaped to Ukraine.

      Representatives of “Drugaya Rossia” say that other party member Mikhail Gangan may also receive the refugee status in Ukraine shortly.
