Yaroslavl resident to be fined for photo of insulting inscription about Putin
Earlier, Roskomnadzor blocked local publications for publication of graffiti news.
A protocol was drawn up at Yaroslavl resident Kirill Poputnikov, under the article about Contempt of the Authorities (part 3 of Article 20.1 of the Administrative Code) for posting graffiti insulting Russian President Vladimir Putin on the social network, Yarqub reports. This photo spread out via the media, some of which Roskomnadzor blocked until the material was removed. Poputnikov faces fines ranging from 30 to 100 thousand.
On March 31, Poputnikov saw an inscription insulting Putin on the facade of the MIA building in the Yaroslavl region, got out of the car and photographed graffiti on a smartphone, and then posted the photo on his Facebook page, the protocol says. At that time, 2489 people were signed to Poputnikov, and the page was publicly available. The police turned to a teacher of Russian language and literature at a local high school for linguistic expertise; she confirmed disrespect for the President.
In 2018, the official became a founder of a fund that deals with shooting and entrapment of wild animals in a hunting sector he supervises. With that, the official did not report about it to his senior executives.
