Oktyabrsky District Court of Vladimir will consider a case of administrative offense against Artem Cherney, a Vladimir social activist, businessman, organizer of intellectual games, and co-organizer of the “Vladimir Future” movement. He is suspected of public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. The case was filed on September 5 and will be considered by Judge Natalia Belyakova, according to the court’s website.
With a high degree of probability the reason for the initiation of the case were the posts of the public figure in social networks. Under the administrative article the defendant faces a fine of 30 to 50 thousand rubles.
Recall the proceedings in a similar case scheduled in Vyazniki for September 15 in respect of the famous Russian cartoonist Valery Kachaeva, who worked in the program “Goodnight, kids,” who created the images for the show “Columbus”, as well as making storyboards for the movie “Night Watch.
The administrative defendant, according to the police, had painted an anti-war slogan on a public transport stop in late August. Law enforcers concluded that in this way he undermined the credibility of the special operation to protect the citizens of the DNR and LNR.
