A report on an “undesirable organization” was drawn up against a Tatar activist, the first in Russia convicted under the article on calls for separatism.

The Naberezhnye Chelny City Court of Tatarstan received materials from administrative cases against activists, twin brothers Rafis and Nafis Kashapov. Information about this appeared in the court database, Mediazona noted.

In both cases, protocols were drawn up regarding participation in the activities of an “undesirable” organization (Article 20.33 of the Administrative Code). What exactly was the reason for this is still unknown.

In 2023, the Prosecutor General’s Office declared the League of Free Nations association, which includes representatives of the peoples of Russia, an “undesirable organization.” Its participant is Rafis Kashapov. The Ministry of Justice considers him a “foreign agent.”

At the end of 2017, Rafis Kashapov was released from the colony, where he spent three years on charges of public calls for separatism (Part 2 of Article 280.1 of the Criminal Code) and inciting hatred or enmity (Part 1 of Article 282 of the Criminal Code). He was the first person convicted in Russia under the article on calls for violation of territorial integrity.

The case was opened due to posts on VKontakte, in which the activist accused Putin of starting the conflict in eastern Ukraine. After his release, Kashapov received political asylum in the UK for five years.

Kashapov is a co-founder of the public movement “Free Idel-Ural”, which was also declared an “undesirable organization” in Russia.

Recently, the Tatar activist took part in the events of the “Forum of Free Peoples of Russia” – this is a project of ex-State Duma deputy Ilya Ponomarev. In March 2023, the Prosecutor General's Office declared the forum “undesirable.”
