Russian dailies publish same front page over reporter's arrest

In what some supporters saw as a small victory, a court on Saturday rejected a request to hold Mr. Golunov in a pretrial detention facility and ordered instead that he be held under house arrest for two months while he is investigated. "I don't know right now what to call it".

In an apparent attempt to portray him as a professional drug dealer, police on Friday released several photos, reportedly from Golunov's home, of what appeared to be a drugs lab.

So what is it about Golunov that has caused has caused such a unified cry of protest?

In Canada, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland told reporters, "We are following the current situation in Russian Federation very closely and with great interest and attention". "There are many questions that the public must receive clear and intelligible answers to".

Golunov is known for his anti-corruptions into the rich and powerful in Russian Federation.

Hadwin's round was highlighted by a hole-out for birdie from just off the green and 50 feet from the hole on the par-3 13th. A bogey at the last hole was a disappointment for the Northern Irishman but he still looms as a threat to those ahead.

Golunov disappeared on Thursday afternoon and turned up in police custody over 12 hours later.

Kolokoltsev said on June 11 that the decision to drop the charges against Golunov was based on results of forensics tests and "due to the fact that the alleged crime has not been proven".

The police say that they found drugs inside the journalist's backpack, which he allegedly wanted to sell, and later found some more in his apartment. The images were swiftly deleted from the interior ministry's website after a police spokesman admitted they had been taken at a different location and bore no relation to the charges against the journalist. Human rights groups said police in Russian Federation often plant drugs on suspects.

In identical statements published on their front pages, the three newspapers said Golunov's prosecution was an act of intimidation against Russian society and demanded an investigation into the policemen who had detained him.

The Russian investigative media outlet Project cited unnamed Kremlin officials on Monday as saying the presidential administration wanted police to drop charges against Golunov because they were anxious Putin would face awkward questions during the live call-in show.
