Khakim was holding a one-man picket outside the city administration in central Sochi on Monday when two police officers took him away. Russia passed an ad-hoc law last year, banning public gatherings and rallies in Sochi during the Olympics. One-man pickets, however, are not covered by this law. Khakim was protesting the three-year prison sentence given last week to environmental activist Evgeny Vitishko for spray-painting a fence on a property in a forest where construction is banned.
