In the Kursk region, a 49-year-old teacher from a school in the Kursk region was charged under the article on “discrediting” the Russian army (part 1 of article 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses), the joint press service of the region’s judicial system reports.
According to the police, on April 6 last year, during a social studies lesson, the teacher “made” in the presence of 10th grade students “negative statements about the activities of the Russian Armed Forces during a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine.” One of the students “recorded” this on the voice recorder of his personal mobile phone, and his father handed over the audio recording to law enforcement agencies.
As follows from the case file, the man no longer works as a school teacher. His trial will take place on March 30.
Mediazona calculated that during the year of full-scale aggression in Ukraine, Russian courts received 6,003 protocols on “discrediting” the Russian army, of which 6,001 cases were considered in district courts and two in military ones.
Approximately a third of cases of “discrediting” the Russian army were initiated for posts in social networks. Among the leaders in terms of the number of cases brought under this article are Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Krasnodar Territory.
