State Duma deputy Alexander Khinshtein boasted that, on his denunciation, the police detained Muscovite Elizaveta Smirnova, who tore off the sign “For Ours” from the information stand at the entrance to the Church of the Archangel Michael in the village of Busharino, Moscow Region, and trampled it. He posted a photo with her and the text of the statement to the police in the Telegram channel.
“Meet: Muscovite Elizaveta Andreevna Smirnova. Now she is giving explanations to the police. Only after my appeals to the Prosecutor General and the Minister of Internal Affairs, the policemen near Moscow were able to find the intruder who plucked Z and the St. George ribbon from the stand at the entrance to the village church. Before that, for more than a month, they ignored the statements of the parish and the community.”
Khinshtein published a video with a woman on June 15. Then he reported that the parish had already filed a complaint with the police about damage to property. The MP expressed the hope that finding an activist "will not be difficult."
The Insider has already written that many cases under articles about “fakes about the Russian army” and “discrediting” the Russian Armed Forces were initiated after denunciations. On August 4, 45-year-old English teacher Irina Gen was sentenced to five years probation in the case of "fake" about the army based on political hatred. The case against Gene was brought after a denunciation by a schoolboy – one of the students of the 8th "b" class, before whom she made an anti-war speech. At the end of June, the media reported how in St. Petersburg a man denounced his friend for criticizing the war for the sake of "re-education." In May, the media wrote how in Moscow a girl was detained at her workplace for a Ukrainian ribbon after a denunciation by an employee of the business center where she came to work.
