A criminal case has been opened against Ilya Yashin under the article on “discrediting the army of the Russian Federation”. In one of his streams, the oppositionist spoke about the massacre in Bucha.
This could not go unnoticed by Russian law enforcement agencies.
On June 28, Ilya Yashin was arrested while walking in the park under a far-fetched pretext. Allegedly, during the document check, he grabbed police officers by the uniform and used obscene language.
On this false charge, Yashin was sentenced to 15 days of administrative arrest.
Ilya Yashin has repeatedly criticized Putin and the head of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov. As the opposition leader said during his last arrest:
The authorities gave me a ‘final Chinese warning’. Either I have to leave Russia or I will be put in prison.
UPD: The court decided to apply to Ilya Yashin a measure of restraint in the form of detention. Ilya Yashin will remain in jail until September 12.
