Penza policeman loses job due to Instagram videos

The MIA found the blogger’s creativity to be offensive to law enforcement agencies.

The Russian MIA fired a young policeman from Penza, Roman Pirakov, for vines and other funny videos on YouTube and Instagram. By publishing them, he insulted the honor and dignity of law enforcement officers, TV channel 360 reports.

“Mostly, I shot sports videos and some funny stuff for myself, purely for fun purposes. Then, my video was leaked to the Police Ombudsman public page. That's where it all started,” Pirakov said.

The Ministry checked the blogger-policeman’s posts and on February 6 dismissed him from the bodies. “I wanted to enroll in the Shchukin School, but now I’m not getting anywhere, they won’t even hire me as a janitor,” Pirakov says.
