The prosecutor's office requested the restriction of freedom of a Nizhny Novgorod journalist due to posts about last year's rally in support of Navalny

journalist Natalia Rezontova in the “sanitary case”. Yuri Sidorov, a lawyer from the OVD-Info project, reports this.

Among the restrictions requested by the Rezontova prosecutor during the debate is a ban on leaving Nizhny Novgorod.

According to investigators, in January 2021, Rezontova published posts on social networks about actions in support of Alexei Navalny, “deliberately ignoring the requirements of sanitary and epidemiological rules regarding the cancellation of mass events” (part 1 of Article 236 of the Criminal Code).

C March 2021, the journalist was under a ban on certain activities. Since February 2022, the journalist’s case has been considered in the Nizhny Novgorod District Court of Nizhny Novgorod.

In March, she was placed under house arrest for almost six months, until August. Employees of the Federal Penitentiary Service demanded this because Rezontova refused to wear an electronic bracelet, which her preventive measure did not imply. They explained the need for this by saying that the journalist, according to their data, was walking around the city with a blue-and-yellow bag with the words “no war” written on it. jpg” class=”mz-publish-context-cite__image” alt=”1″ />Article“The opportunity to earn a living was taken from me by the court.” What happens to the defendants in the Nizhny Novgorod “sanitary case”
