The court found a worker of JSC “Kovrov Electromechanical Plant” guilty of committing public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to protect the interests of Russia and its citizens. It was reported earlier that on April 12, 2022, the man was on the territory of the plant and in the presence of his colleagues spoke out against the “special operation”. His act violated part 1 of Article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation, which has been widely used in recent months.
At the first hearing the court returned the report to the police because of the violations committed during its preparation. Apparently, they were later corrected.
As reported on the website of Kovrov city court, the KEMZ worker was sentenced to a fine of 30 thousand rubles.
In June Leninsky district court passed two decrees on fines to Vladimir residents whose actions were qualified under part 1 of clause 20.3.3 of the Administrative Offences Code of the Russian Federation. One citizen made an inscription on the wall of his house, which undermined the credibility of the “special operation”, and another had an ideologically incorrect poster hanging in his store.
Another resident of Vladimir failed to appeal against the fine for the yellow and blue poster, with which he had come to Theater Square.
In addition, fines were issued under this administrative article in Kovrov (for slogans in stores), in Murom (for an incorrect poster) and in Kirzhach (for statements at the trial).
