The OPER leaked telegram channel published a video with an apology from Ukrainian citizen Svetlana Matukhnova, who was arrested twice in a row by a Sochi court in April for posts on Instagram in support of her country.
The girl in the video, standing in a constrained pose, apologizes to the “Russian people and the armed forces of the Russian Federation” for public insults on Instagram. The Ukrainian confusingly says that she has been living in Sochi for 6 years and does not consider the Russian people bad. In the video, she promises “not to post more such posts and not to do such actions.”
In April, the Sochi court arrested Matukhnova twice under protocols on extremism (Part 1 of Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). On April 19, the girl was arrested for five days for the slogan Glory to Ukraine in an Instagram post, and on April 24 on eight days for opposing Russians and Ukrainians in a publication. On April 27, the court received the third protocol from the girl about “discrediting” the army (Part 1 of Article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses). It was drawn up by the police along with the first protocol based on materials provided by the FSB.
