In the court of Yekaterinburg, during a hearing on a criminal case for discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the prosecutor asked the former mayor of the city, Yevgeny Roizman*, to pay a fine of 260,000 rubles. It is reported by TASS.
“I ask you to impose a fine on Roizman (…) in the amount of 260,000 rubles,” said a representative of the prosecution.
Recall that the trial was opened after a video published by Roizman, where he, speaking about events in the country, made remarks that, according to the investigation, undermine the authority of the RF Armed Forces.
Now the former mayor of Yekaterinburg is under an article which provides for a sentence in the form of restriction of freedom for up to three years with deprivation of the right to hold certain positions or engage in certain activities during the same period. Alternatively, a fine of up to 300,000 rubles, as well as hard labor for up to three years, may be imposed.
Recall that earlier Yevgeny Roizman was already charged in an administrative case, then he received 14 days of administrative arrest as a punishment for reposting a VKontakte post with a video with the symbols of the Anti-Corruption Foundation * *. Roizman himself claims at the same time that he never registered on this social network.
