The hosts of the Popular Politics program, created by supporters of Alexei Navalny, were charged with “fake news” and “justifying terrorism”. This is reported by the Telegram-channel "Siren".
The Investigative Committee appointed linguistic examinations of the statements and posts of Ivan Zhdanov, Maria Pevchikh, Leonid Volkov, Kira Yarmysh, Ruslan Shaveddinov, Lyubov Sobol, Anna Biryukova and Dmitry Nizovtsev. We are talking about the coverage of the war in Ukraine.
According to the channel, the criminal cases are based on the reports of the hosts about the crimes of the Russian army on the territory of Ukraine, as well as about the arson of military registration and enlistment offices.
“This is the first mass case against the hosts of the Youtube channel about “fakes” about the Russian army,” the message says.
