A court in Volgograd fined 62-year-old Alexander Semshchikov 15 thousand rubles under the article on “discrediting” the Russian army (part 1 of article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses), reported in the telegram channel of the regional press service of the courts.
According to the case file, in May 2022, Rimshchikov from the cab of a KamAZ vehicle shouted “Glory to Ukraine!” to the military commissar. In court, the man reportedly pleaded guilty and “sincerely repented of his deed.”
Edition V1.RU writesthat the military commissar’s name is Ivan Rybin. Rimshchikov, seeing him in uniform, shouted “Glory to Ukraine!” through the truck window.
At the disposal of the editors was a recording of the conversation. In particular, the military man says to the man: “What does Glory to Ukraine have to do with it? Are they beating Ukrainians or humiliating Ukraine? Why are you shouting? Why are you working here, getting money? Is it here, is someone insulting Ukraine, or what?”. Tenants replies: “A lot of them die there.”
