Kovrov City Court will consider the protocol drawn up against an employee of KEMZ (The Kovrov Electro-Mechanical Plant). Law enforcement officers recorded that the man committed public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in order to protect the interests of the Russian Federation and its citizens (part 1 of article 20.3.3 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation).
It follows from the report that on 12 April a local resident, while at work on the territory of the Kovrov electromechanical plant, had the carelessness to speak out in the presence of his colleagues. At the same time, his statements “undermined the credibility of the special military operation to protect the citizens of the DNR (Donetsk people’s republic) and LNR (Lugansk people’s republic)”.
The press service of the Kovrov city court told ProVladimir that the man works at the plant in a working profession. The court could not explain how the law enforcement officers learned about the illegal public actions, but suggested that the police were called by the worker’s colleagues. Several witnesses to the incident are listed in the protocol.
At the time of publication of this material the date of the court hearing had not been set. Part 1 of Article 20.3.3 of the Administrative Code provides for a penalty for citizens in the form of a fine of 30 to 50 thousand rubles.
We should remind that on April 6th , the court fined a resident of Vladimir for 30 thousand rubles for going out on Teatralnaya Square with a yellow and blue poster, undermining the credibility of the “special operation”. In March a man from Murom received a fine of 40 thousand rubles for a similar poster. A resident of Kovrovka, who was expressing slogans in stores, which fall under the sanctions of the above article, was fined 30 thousand rubles.
