Alexei Dymovsky, who became widely known after speaking out on video-sharing site YouTube in November, has been charged with fraud and corruption. Mr Dymovsky, from southern Russia, had already been fired from his job. He had earlier said the authorities wanted to silence him and get revenge for what he had done. In the video, he spoke out about corruption and illegal activities within the police force in his home town, saying he could no longer tolerate being told to arrest innocent people to meet monthly targets.
