Earlier, Governor of Kaluga Vladislav Shapsha and Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev stood up for Yevich. The latter said that he was ready to pay a fine for Jevic if the court found him guilty.
A lawsuit against Yevich was filed by a representative of the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs for Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk after the doctor gave a lecture on military-patriotic education in Sakhalin to the National Guard. The protocol on the administrative offense mentioned four quotations from a three-hour lecture during which the military doctor was said to have "made statements aimed at creating a negative assessment of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation due to the implementation of the SVO." Yevich, in particular, pointed to the insufficient level of training and equipment in the medical field among the employees of the National Guard.
Jevic himself assumed that the case was initiated by the local authorities. The trial was to take place on April 18 in the Kaluga region.
