On March 9, 18-year-old student Andrey Vasyurenko was detained in Petrozavodsk under this article. He is suspected of allegedly trying to persuade the Russians to go over to the side of Ukraine and fight against the Russian Federation. The security forces claim that the young man is a supporter of the independence of Karelia.
As Section One explains , under this law, the instigator is essentially the instigator of the crime:
According to Part 4 of Art. 33 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, an instigator is a person who persuaded another person to commit a crime by persuasion, bribery, threat or in any other way. The first person is recognized as an accomplice in the crime. In other words, the instigator is actually the initiator of the crime: his actions arouse in another person the desire to commit a crime, and the legislator defines these actions as inducement. Incitement can be not only oral, but also written; be done through facial expressions, gestures, using instant messengers. The main thing is that it should be aimed at forming the intent of the perpetrator to commit a crime. Incitement, which led to its result, is considered as a kind of complicity.
That is, if the perpetrator has the “intent to commit a crime,” this is already a reason for a criminal case against the one who caused this intent, human rights activists write.
