Ufa court for first time brought in verdict on discrediting Armed Forces of Russian Federation

On March 9, the Oktyabrsky District Court of Ufa for the first time delivered a verdict under the recently introduced article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation “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, maintain international peace and security.” A 27-year-old resident of Sterlitamak was fined for 40 thousand rubles.

Earlier, the Bashinform News Agency reported that on March 6, in the capital of Bashkiria, employees of the republican Ministry of Internal Affairs stopped two single pickets, which were aimed at discrediting the actions of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. Two administrative cases were initiated. The second case against the Ufa citizen is pending in court.
