The prosecution asks to sentence activist Dmitry Ivanov to nine years in prison in the case of "fakes" about the Russian army, according to the "Protest Moscow State University" project he created.
Ivanov was detained in June last year immediately after he had served 25 days of administrative arrest under the article on repeated violation of the procedure for holding the rally. After that, the court sent him to a pre-trial detention center on charges of "disseminating knowingly false information about the activities of the armed forces motivated by hatred."
Ivanov is accused of spreading "fake news" about the Russian army because of the publication of Protest MGU about the genocide in Bucha and Irpen, as well as for using the word "war".
Earlier it was reported that after one of the court sessions, Ivanov was beaten by a guard. The Sota project managed to establish his identity: he turned out to be police ensign Alexei Nikolaevich Zhalnin.
