In six months, the Crimean occupation courts considered 109 cases of the alleged discrediting of the Russian armed forces. This was reported by CrimeaSOS analyst Yevheny Yaroshenko, according to the CrimeaSOS agency.

"For almost half a year, the "Crimean courts" opened 109 administrative cases on the alleged discrediting of the Russian armed forces against 105 people. Only in two cases were persons found innocent", Yaroshenko said.

In 96 cases, people were fined an average of 30,000 rubles. 8 cases were transferred to other "courts" or they have not yet been decided. In 11 cases, errors were found in the documents, so the cases were returned to the "authorities" that initiated administrative proceedings.

"The chanting of the slogans 'No war', 'Glory to Ukraine', and the public demonstration of Ukrainian symbols are grounds for bringing people to justice for allegedly discrediting the armed forces of Russia", the analyst explained.
