Today the Nagatinsky District Court of Moscow was to elect a preventive measure for Vashukevich and Leslie in the case of Inducing to Prostitution (part 2 of Art. 240 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
Vashukevich and Kirillov became known after Alexey Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) showed pictures from Instagram of the girl, in which a man similar to Deputy Prime Minister Sergey Prikhodko, stayed on a yacht of oligarch Oleg Deripaska, accompanied by escort girls. Later the FBK published an interview with the author of the book titled A Diary About Seducing a Billionaire Nastya Rybka and her sex trainer Alex Leslie.
Deripaska filed a lawsuit with the Ust-Labinsku Court of Krasnodar region, and it recognized the investigation as violating the businessman’s privacy rights and charged 500 thousand rubles from the defendants. The investigation and reports in the media about the businessman were included by Roskomnadzor in the register of prohibited information.
In February 2018, local law enforcement officers detained Russians involved in the Life Without Panties sex training in one of the hotels in Pattaya. They were accused of organizing a criminal community, concert of more than five people to commit a crime and organizing the provision of sexual services. They faced up to 20 years in prison. On January 15, a Thai court sentenced the defendants in the case to a suspended term.
On January 17, upon arrival at Sheremetyevo, four Russians, including Rybka and Leslie, were detained in the case of Inducing to Prostitution (part 2 of Art. 240 of the Criminal Code). The detention caused quite a stir. The day before, Navalny released material in which he stated that the criminal prosecution of Vashukevich and Kirillov was initiated on instructions of billionaire Oleg Deripaska, who avenges the escortress for divulging the secrets of his private life. To support his words, the oppositionist posted on his website audio recordings of the intercepted telephone conversations of the oligarch and people from his entourage, who discussed the future of Rybka.
Mass protest rallies have been taking place in Moscow on a regular basis since the beginning of this summer. People are protesting for lots of different reasons. However, the reaction of the law enforcement authorities is always the same: repression. What is the reason behind the brutality shown during the dispersion of mass rallies? A conscious intimidation policy or incompetence of law enforcement functionaries escalating the violence and unable to imagine the potential consequences of this?
