Second protocol on discrediting Russian army drawn up against “Wild Paratrooper” blogger from Novorossiysk

In Novorossiysk, another protocol under the article on discrediting the Russian armed forces was drawn up against Askhabali Alibekov, known as an author of the “Wild Paratrooper” blog, after he posted a video on the Internet calling for a stop to the special military operation in Ukraine. The second protocol threatens Askhabali Alibekov with a criminal case.

The “Caucasian Knot” has reported that on May 12, it became known that Askhabali Alibekov was found guilty of discrediting the Russian armed forces. The activist said that he did not agree with the court’s decision and that he intended to appeal against it.

On June 8, a new administrative case against Askhabali Alibekov was received by the Oktyabrsky Court of Novorossiysk. The activist is accused of discrediting the Russian armed forces, the “OVD-Info”* reported.

“Now a protocol has been drawn up for a video on my channel calling to stop [the special military operation in Ukraine] and return our guys home. I have already filed an appeal to the Krasnodar Regional Court concerning the court’s decision on the first protocol,” said Askhabali Alibekov as quoted by the “Kavkaz. Realii”*.

If both protocols come into force, the blogger will face a criminal case.

  • Lawyers doubt prospect of bills banning religious clothes

    The bills that intend to ban wearing religious clothing, including niqabs, in public places are causing a split in the society, which is especially negative amid the special military operation (SMO) in Ukraine. Religious clothes are not widespread in the country, this issue is not relevant, therefore the bills to ban them will not be adopted, lawyers believe.
