In St. Petersburg, the court sentenced the woman to a suspended sentence for placement in the social network of "VKontakte" reactions of extremist content. This was reported on Thursday, August 23, in the Telegram channel of the joint press service of stadhoven.
As the court has established, Olga Chernichkina entered the social network in December 2016 and posted comments aimed at inciting hatred and enmity, as well as humiliating the dignity of a group of people on the basis of gender, race and nationality in one of the St. Petersburg groups.
Women's statements include "the urge to use hostile acts of violence – to kill persons, representatives of the Caucasus and Central Asia nationalities, as well as to use other violent actions that indicate the expression of hostility toward these people. "
The court ordered Chernichkina to be sentenced to a prison sentence for a period of two years on probation.
On August 22, the Human Rights Council under the president proposed changes to anti-extremist legislation, including the removal of part 1 of article 282 of the Criminal Code in the Criminal Code and the re-qualification of hateful statements or violence as administrative violations. Human rights activists noted that last year only one person was convicted of extremist actions, and 460 – for words.
