Dzhalagoniya, a native of Georgia, was arrested on April 9 for pilfering a "high-quality" bottle of wine from a Moscow supermarket.
There are also reports available in Russian from vesti.ru, "Izvestiya," and Interfax.

Written by RFE/RL editors and correspondents, Transmission serves up news, comment, and the odd silly dictator story. While our primary concern is with foreign policy, Transmission is also a place for the ideas -- some serious, some irreverent -- that bubble up from our bureaus. The name recognizes RFE/RL's role as a surrogate broadcaster to places without free media. You can write us at transmission+rferl.org
