A resident of the Chornomorske district of the occupied Crimea was fined 40,000 rubles for discrediting the RF Armed Forces.

According to the press service of the Chornomorske District Court, the man spoke publicly about the illegality of the actions of Russian military personnel in Ukraine.

We remind that the Russian authorities are systematically persecuting residents of the occupied Crimea who disagree with the occupation and the full-scale war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine. The occupants deliberately create new tools for their persecution. For example, they introduced a new article in the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation Public actions aimed at discrediting the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
