Russian courts received more than 5,000 protocols on “discrediting” the army

Since the beginning of March 2022, Russian courts have received 5,003 administrative cases on “discrediting” the army (20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses).

Of these, 5,001 cases were heard in district courts and 2 in military courts. One of the “military” cases was heard by the 26th garrison court in Baikonur. The person on whom the protocol was drawn up does not serve in the army and passes as a civilian; due to the status of Baikonur, only a military court is present here, which deals with all cases.

According to the publication on the website of the court, a resident of Baikonur named Borisov posted a video on Odnoklassniki entitled “ZELENSKY in Bucha: thousands killed, chopped off …”. In addition, the protocol indicated that he put a “class” on pro-Ukrainian posts and published the Ukrainian flag.

Borisov admitted his guilt and explained that he did not think that the information from his page was in the public domain. The court sentenced him to a fine of 30 thousand rubles.

The district courts received the most cases in Moscow (681 cases), St. Petersburg (284 cases), Krasnodar Territory (233 cases), Crimea (167 cases) and Sverdlovsk Region (140 cases). Most of them – from 70 to 80% depending on the region – have already been considered, and a decision has been made on them.

An article on public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Russian army (20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses) was introduced into the Code of Administrative Offenses on March 4. It provides for punishment in the form of a fine of 30 to 50 thousand rubles. Within a year after the entry into force of the court decision, a person may be prosecuted for a similar violation (Article 280.3 of the Criminal Code). or on ballot papers, for asking to play the Ukrainian song “Oh, luzi chervona viburnum” at a wedding, for an appeal by municipal deputies to recognize Vladimir Putin as a traitor, and even for an application for alternative service from a draftee.
