To this man, Islamic State ideology “just made sense.” After incarceration, he rejects extremism.
FBK Zelensky’s videographer was detained. He is accused of inciting extremism
He was taken to the Investigative Committee. A case of incitement to extremism was opened against an FBK employee
Pavel Zelensky, operator of the Anti-Corruption Fund, was detained in Moscow on Friday. Vyacheslav Gimadi, head of the legal department of the foundation, told Mediazona about this. It is reported that a criminal case has been opened against Zelensky on incitement to extremism.
FBK’s videographer has already been delivered to the Moscow department of the Investigative Committee.
In the morning, Zelensky’s apartment was searched: law enforcement officers seized his phone and laptop. Lawyer Mansur Gilmanov told about this to Novaya Gazeta. According to him, Zelensky complained that one of the operatives hit him on the head.
As the head of the international “Agora” Pavel Chikov later clarified, Zelensky was prosecuted for incitement to extremism because of a tweet written shortly after the suicide of Nizhny Novgorod journalist Irina Slavina in October last year..
“Irina, forgive us, forgive us for allowing it. With these words, I ask all of us to get up, wake up, stop tweeting and electronically worry. Let’s (beat) this discontent “, – wrote on Twitter Pavel Zelensky.
FBK founder Alexei Navalny supported Zelenskiy by tweeting the opinion that he “wrote everything correctly”.
Pavel Chikov also said that ambulance doctors insist on hospitalizing Zelensky, but the investigator does not allow him to be sent to the hospital. An employee in civilian clothes tried to push Gilmanov’s lawyer out of his office.
Subsequently, Gimadi said that Zelensky would be detained for 48 hours – apparently pending trial as he was prevented.
Nizhny Novgorod journalist Irina Slavina committed an act of self-immolation on October 2 last year at the building of the city administration of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. In social networks, she left a note that she asks to blame the Russian Federation for her death.
For “incitement to extremism” may face imprisonment. Blogger Vladislav Sinitsa, arrested during the protests in Moscow in 2019, was sentenced to 5 years in prison for tweeting about the children of law enforcement officers, which the investigation and the court considered a threat, although it did not contain direct appeals.
