The 2nd Western District Military Court fined Lilia Zhlobitskaya 300 thousand rubles in the case of justifying terrorism. She herself told the human rights project OVD-Info about this.
The case against Zhlobitskaya was initiated in December last year due to two reposts and a link to the stihi.ru website, which were published on her social networks in November and December 2019. All texts are dedicated to the woman's nephew Mikhail Zhlobitsky, who in the fall of 2018 detonated a homemade bomb in the building of the Arkhangelsk UFSB and himself died in the explosion.
The experts, who were involved by the prosecution, came to the conclusion that the texts of Zhlobitsky's actions are recognized as "correct, in need of support and imitation."
In October 2018, 17-year-old student Mikhail Zhlobitsky set off an explosion in the building of the Arkhangelsk department of the FSB. The young man died, three more employees of the department were injured. Shortly before the explosion, a message about a planned explosion appeared on Telegram in the open chat of the Rebel Speech. In this regard, the UK opened a criminal case on the terrorist attack.
According to OVD-Info, during this time around 30 criminal cases were opened throughout the country on the "justification of terrorism" in the wake of the explosion in the FSB. The most famous was the case against Svetlana Prokopyeva, a correspondent for Radio Liberty and Echo of Moscow in Pskov, who wrote about Zhlobitsky's possible motives. The journalist was fined 500 thousand rubles.
