The Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs put activist Olga Misik on the federal wanted list, she herself said in her Telegram channel.
According to her, in this way the Voskresensky City Court of the Moscow Region replaced her restriction of freedom in the case of vandalism (part 2 of article 214 of the Criminal Code). At the same time, neither she nor her lawyer Dmitry Zakhvatov was notified about the change in status.
The vandalism case, also known as the “booth of federal significance” case, was initiated in 2020 after Misik, as well as activists Ivan Vorobyevsky and Igor Basharimov, staged a protest against the verdict in the New Greatness case. The investigation claims that on August 8, 2020, they hung out “offensive” banners near the Lublin court and the building of the Prosecutor General’s Office, and also doused the latter with pink paint. As a result, the Prosecutor General's Office, according to the IC, suffered damage in the amount of 3,464 rubles 50 kopecks.
In May 2021, Justice of the Peace of Court District No. 369 of Moscow, Maria Buraya, sentenced Misik to two years of confinement, and Vorobyevsky and Basharimov to one year and nine months each.
Misik is an activist for Indefinite Protest. She became famous after the summer protests in Moscow in 2019, where she read the Constitution to the security forces. According to her lawyer, now the girl is not in Russia.
