Russian Student Fined for Slavic Symbol on Her Bag

The student Anastasia Konovalova from the town of Volzhsk,  Mari El Republic , was detained by police in Kazan city for carrying a packet with the inscription Be on the Light Side and a pagan Slavic symbol of solstice.

      As the police officers explained, it reminded them of the nazi swastika symbolics. As a result of the magistrate fined the girl 500 rubles.

      Nevertheless, the Kazan police still refuses to detain the supporters of the extremist organization Hizb-ut-Tahrir Al-Islami who demonstrate its symbolics at various events in the city; the officers explain that "there is no appropriate expert opinion". However, as the recent incident with Anastasia Konovalova shows, for detaining youth with traditional Slavic symbols the police does not require such examination, but just a personal assumption is sufficient.
