Opposition activist Leonid Razvozzhayev indicted under the Anatomy of Protest 2 film material says he will not change his position and views his transfer from Moscow to Irkutsk as an attempt at pressure.

A statement of Razvozzhayev published in the Live Journal by his lawyer Dmitry Agranovsky on Tuesday says he might refute his lawyers or his position "only under pressure."

"I view my transfer to Irkutsk under the pretext of investigative procedures as an attempt at pressure to give the false testimony the detectives need," he said.
