In Kazan, in connection with a case over a voice chat, they came with a search to an activist who participated in the collection of signatures for Nadezhdin

In Kazan, security forces came to search the house of activist Evgeniy Markov in the morning, who was collecting signatures for Boris Nadezhdin. This was announced by the head of Nadezhdin’s headquarters in Tatarstan, Dmitry Rumyantsev.

According to Rumyantsev, Markov, like himself, is a member of the “Civil Initiative”, which nominated Nadezhdin. Employees of the Center for Combating Extremism of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which deals with political affairs, came to him.

The search, as Rumyantsev himself and SOTA clarified, turned out to be connected with a criminal case of “incitement of hatred”, in which businessman Ruslan was arrested in August 2023 Bayazitov, co-founder of the Kazan Internet provider MELT.

The reason for the persecution of Bayazitov were the words of an anonymous user in a voice chat on a telegram: “Rusnya <…> These are fucking chauvinists who hate everyone around them.” The man also said that he “supports the murder of those who are behind SVO“. Investigators attributed these words specifically to the 53-year-old entrepreneur (clause “a” of Part 2 of Article 282 of the Criminal Code).
