Founder of ‘All-Men State’ gets suspended sentence for inciting hatred towards women
A Nizhny Novgorod resident has created a closed vk.com group in the spirit of ‘national patriarchy.’
A Nizhny Novgorod court has sentenced the founder of a closed vk.com group Muzhskoe Gosudarstvo (‘All-Men State’) Vladislav Pozdnyakov to two years’ suspended sentence for inciting hatred against women (part 1 of Art. 282). This is reported by Mediazona referring to the court’s press service.
According to the investigation, in the group, he promoted the idea of ‘national patriarchy’ and “carried out actions aimed at the humiliation of human dignity towards women.” The defendant would ban people for any manifestations of ‘Tom-tilery,’ compliments to girls, approval of the political elite, and many other opinions that he did not share.
“It’s nothing. The guys just have fun, get together, have subbotniks, and so on,” Mediazona cites Pozdnyakov describing the activities of his like-minded people.
The number of group members exceeded 150 thousand. Among them was an FSB informant. In September 2018, Pozdnyakov was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, and then the article was changed.
