Dniprovskiy District Court of Kyiv chose personal recognizance as a restrictive measure for pranker Vitalii Sediuk, who mooned the crowd during Eurovision. This was announced by the judge who read the decision on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.
The court ordered the suspect to respond when summoned to the pre-trial investigation bodies, deposit documents allowing to leave the country, report of any change of residence and so on.
"The court ordered to apply personal recognizance as preventive measure to suspect Sediuk. The mentioned obligations are placed on Sediuk for 60 days," judge said.
"I respect the law, I can "do stuff" on stage, but outside I am always obedient. Older generation criticized me, younger came to take a photo with me. Some people like me, some people not, I cannot by liked by everybody. If I check my mail, I will have 200-300 requests for an interview, I can give it to two channels and suggest paying me, and they will pay. But I never took money for this. I am not making money from this," Sediuk said in court.
He noted that he was offered to do provocations for money many times, but he refused.
