February 26, 2016 21:30


Yekaterinburg railroad court found the 46-year-old Ekaterina Vologzhennova guilty of hatred and feud incitement, reports According to the court’s decision, the single mother will have her laptop, mouse and charger destroyed for making reposts of Ukraine-supportive posts.

She is also sentenced to 320 probation hours. The woman charged of violating the rule 282 of the Law Code of Russian Federation (Incitement of hatred or feud, discrimination of human dignity), has reposted several posts from a public “Ukrainian national self-defense” and “Praviy sector” (the organization is banned in Russia).

One of the posts particularly showed a woman with a machine gun commenting “I’m a Banderovka. Death to Moscow occupants!” Vologzhennova did this because she supports the policy of Ukrainian officials and wanted, as stated during the hearing, to get Russian and Ukrainian people to unite. Witnesses say that she spoke negatively of the participation of Russian forces in Ukraine”, the portal quotes the judge.

The linguistic examination proved that both the illustrations and texts were aimed at creating hatred and feud towards Russians, as stated in the sentence.

In March 2015 a journalist from Smolensk Polina Petruseva was fined for 1000 rubles for propaganda and public demonstration of Nazi symbolism. On her page in Vkontakte she posted a photograph of a column of German troops with the Nazi flag to be seen in the background. The picture had the following words beneath them: “Just found a picture of my back yard”. The photo is dated back to 1941-43.
