Moscow: A trial for the blogger who is accused of inciting religious hatred for playing "Pokemon Go" in a church has begun in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg.
Ruslan Sokolovsky has been in pre-trial detention since October when a court reversed his house arrest.
Sokolovsky posted a video on his blog last year showing him playing the smartphone game in a church built on the supposed spot where the family of the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II, was killed.
He faces a possible sentence of seven years in prison if convicted.
