Court fines Astrakhan resident for discrediting Russian militaries

A court in the Astrakhan Region has fined Evgeny Katyshevtsev, a local resident, finding discrediting of the Russian Army in his posts in his social network page.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that law enforcers had drawn up three protocols against Katyshevtsev under an administrative article on discrediting the Russian Army. The Akhtubinsky District Court has combined the protocols into one proceeding. The reason for the fine was in his posts placed in the page in the "Odnoklassniki" social network, the "Kavkaz.Realii"* project has informed.

The posts in which the court saw discrediting Russian militaries were placed back in March. In all the cases, Katyshevtsev posted videos of Ukrainian information resources with forecasts about the course of hostilities. The court has noted that two of these posts were in the Ukrainian language.

Katyshevtsev has explained that he had not treated these posts as discrediting the Russian Army.

Religious clothes are not widespread in the country, this issue is not relevant, therefore the bills to ban them will not be adopted, lawyers believe.
