The ‘Gagarinsky District Court’ of Sevastopol sentenced conditionally a 21-year-old local resident for “appeals for extremism on social networks.”
The FSB instituted proceedings under RF CC Article 280-2 – public appeals to extremist activities – and Article 148-1 – violation of the right to freedom of conscience and religion.
According to the occupiers, a Sevastopol resident born in 2001 posted “Ukrainian nationalist slogans” on social networks, which allegedly contained “calls for violence against groups of people separated on national and racial grounds.”
The Sevastopol resident was sentenced conditionally by the occupation court to 1 year and 6 months with a probation period of 1 year. The “court” also deprived the young man of the right to administer the sites for a period of 1 year and 6 months.
As reported by the CHRG, on May 16, Bohdan Azizov, born in 1994, was detained in Yevpatoriya for spilling the ‘administration’ building in Yevpatoria with yellow and blue paints. In early March in Crimea, a 17-year-old student allegedly painted a monument to the Russian occupation forces in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. The occupiers detained him and accused him of “vandalism”.
