A resident of the Tver region became a defendant in a criminal case in St. Petersburg. According to investigators, in anticipation of the 78th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War, he publicly rehabilitated Nazism.
As Fontanka was informed in the Main Directorate of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad Region on May 18, at ten in the morning the day before, employees of the criminal investigation department of the head office raided Tuchkov lane, 11, and left in the company of a 54-year-old man.
The attention of the security forces was attracted to him by Internet activity. More precisely, the comments on the social network “with elements of discredit and falsification, denying the events of historical reality.” According to investigators, a guest from the Tver region wrote them from the profile he administered on May 3, when he was in the Kirovsky district of the Leningrad region.
A case was initiated on the rehabilitation of Nazism (the second part of Article 354.1 of the Criminal Code). The suspect was released on bail, making it difficult for him to access the Internet – a laptop and both phones were confiscated.
