February 22, 2023

The Central District Court of Simferopol extended the arrest of Andrii Belozerov, a former teacher at the Bilohirsk Technical School, until March 16, 2023.

“On February 20, at the request of the prosecutor’s office of the Central District of Simferopol, a court session was held at which judge Aleksandr Voronoi granted the prosecutor’s request and extended house arrest until March 16, 2023, while maintaining all the previously established restrictions”,- Bilozerov himself said.

On October 9, 2022, on his page, a former teacher at the Bilohirsk Technical School posted a post that said: Innocent children and women of Ukraine in the Donbas have been bombed by the RF Armed Forces for 8 years, turning guns from the front line towards Donetsk, and for the last six months, again, the RF Armed Forces have been bombing Ukrainian cities and kills Ukrainian residents. For this post he was arrested.

Prior to this, Bilozerov posted a video in which he watches a video with a Ukrainian song about the Bayraktar drone playing in the background. For this, he was arrested for 13 days and fired from the Bilohirsk technical school. At the end of November, a protocol was drawn up against him on the use of Nazi symbols (Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of Russia). The reason was the publication on Belozerov’s page on VKontakte with the Ukrainian song Red Viburnum, for which he was given 14 days of administrative arrest.
