A court in the Nizhny Novgorod region did not arrest a local resident in cases of military “fakes” and incitement to hatred, which were initiated due to comments

The Kstovo City Court of the Nizhny Novgorod Region imposed a ban on certain actions to Andrei Rossiev, who is accused of military “fake news” (clause “e” of part 2 of article 207.3 of the Criminal Code) and inciting hatred or enmity (clause “a” of part 2 of article 282 of the Criminal Code) . It is reported by OVD-Info with reference to lawyer Kristina Tyurina.

A resident of Kstovo was forbidden to use means of communication and the Internet, to participate in mass events, and to communicate with people “agitating, inciting to discuss topics that incite political, ideological, racial, national or religious hatred or enmity.” As the human rights activist clarified, the investigation petitioned to send Rossiev to a pre-trial detention center.

1Article “I wrote that the day was boiling.” A resident of Kstovo who commented on the news received cases of terrorism, extremism and “discrediting” the army

The reason for the case under the first article was ten comments on VKontakte about the killings in Bucha and the actions of the Russian military in other cities of Ukraine. A second case was brought against him because of 27 more comments, where, in addition to the army itself, Russians supporting the war were mentioned.

Rossiev was detained on November 10 in Krasnodar, where he had recently lived. FSB officers searched his mother's house. After that, the man was taken away for interrogation in the Nizhny Novgorod region.

Earlier, in April of this year, Rossiev was arrested in the case of public justification of terrorism (Part 2 of Article 205.2 of the Criminal Code), which was opened because of a comment on the news about a pensioner who sued 60,000 rubles for illegal prosecution under the same article. Later, an article on inciting hatred against law enforcement officers of Russia and Belarus was added to the charge (paragraph “a” of part 2 of article 282 of the Criminal Code).

As a result, a resident of Kstovo was fined 300 thousand rubles. In addition, while Rossiev was in jail, he was fined 30,000 rubles under the article on “discrediting” the army (Article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses).
