Ministry of Internal Affairs: four suspects were detained in the case of a photo shoot at a cemetery in St. Petersburg

The security forces detained four suspects in the case of desecration of graves (Article 244 of the Criminal Code), initiated due to a photo shoot at a cemetery in St. Petersburg. This was reported by “Paper” with reference to the press service of the St. Petersburg department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Among those detained are a 22-year-old participant in the action and its 27-year-old “organizer.” Another participant in the photo shoot, a 19-year-old girl, was detained in Pskov. The fourth detainee is a 37-year-old photographer.

The paper suggests that the police name artists Anna Panteleeva and Kristina Rozhkova as one of the participants and the “organizer” of the action. The first was detained on June 18 after footage from the Bolsheokhtinsky cemetery with her participation was published by the founder of the “Male State” Vladislav Pozdnyakov, and professional informer Timur Bulatov complained about the artist to the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

Rozhkova’s arrest became known on June 19. She told OVD-Info that she did not participate in the photo shoot. The Human Rights Project also wrote that the artist's status in the criminal case is unknown.

Shortly before her arrest, Panteleeva published a post on Instagram in which she said that she urgently needed to leave Russia. After Pozdnyakov’s publication, they began to threaten her, and the artist herself apologized to those who might have been offended by the filming.
