First Fine in Crimea for NO WAR Slogan

A Simferopol resident was fined RUR35,000 for NO WAR slogan.

The woman told the CHRG that on March 9, she came to the monument to Taras Shevchenko in Simferopol, laid flowers at the monument, and placed a blue and yellow cardboard plate on which she wrote NO WAR with a felt-tip pen.

At the same time, two young men in civilian clothes were standing at the monument, one of whom followed her on a trolleybus to the market, and then together with a policeman brought her to the Tsentralny District police station. There she was told that she had committed an offense and an administrative report was drawn up. A few hours later she was taken to the “court”.

“I asked Judge Mozheliansky what was illegal in the slogans about peace. He replied something like “it’s a shot in the back of our guys.” He didn’t ask any questions, he didn’t call a witness, and ruled quickly,” the woman said.

The administrative offense report states that the woman “carried out public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Russian Armed Forces to protect the interests of Russia and its citizens, maintain international peace and security in the framework of  ‘demilitarization’ and  ‘denazification’ of Ukraine, namely demonstrated a handmade cardboard poster in colours of the flag of Ukraine and with the thematic inscription “NO WAR“.

As a result, “judge” Victor Mozheliansky found the woman guilty of committing an administrative offense under RF CoAO Article. 20.3.3-1 (Propaganda or public display of Nazi emblems or symbols, or emblems or symbols, propaganda or public display of which is prohibited by federal law) and imposed a fine of RUR35,000.
