The denunciation of the head of the Yekaterinburg "Memorial" Alexei Mosin, who was subsequently fined 100 thousand rubles for "discrediting" the army, was written by Russian woman Anna Korobkova. She is known as the author of more than a thousand denunciations of fellow citizens who criticize the war in Ukraine. This drew the attention of the Telegram channel 7x7 - "Horizontal Russia".
Korobkova over the past year has been writing denunciations against compatriots who oppose the war. So, in a year she wrote 1013 denunciations, Bloomberg TV Bulgaria reported in May 2023. Korobkova claimed that these reports led to five administrative cases, and promised to continue writing denunciations. She doesn't know any of her "victims" personally, but her name and email address appear on legal documents. Some of the Russians contacted her to ask why she decided to denounce them. According to several people close to the security services, the number of "whistleblowers" has grown since the start of the war in Ukraine and are increasingly led by "ideologically motivated enthusiasts" such as Korobkova.
At the same time, she claims that exposure is in her blood, since her grandfather, according to her, was a soldier and informer for the NKVD (People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs) during World War II. Korobkova said that she browses YouTube media labeled as "foreign agents" and then writes denunciations of those who appear there.
Tatyana Chervenko, a math teacher from Moscow, said she was fired after Korobkova exposed her appearance on the Deutsche Welle channel, which was declared a “foreign agent” in Russia. “Perhaps they wanted to set me up as an example to scare other teachers,” suggested Chervenko, who refused to teach war lessons on the Kremlin’s orders.
On June 17, it became known that Anna Korobkova wrote a denunciation of the mother of a deceased conscript from the Tyumen region, after which a case was opened against her for “discrediting” the RF Armed Forces. The 19-year-old son of Alla Fatkhelislamova, Afanasy Podaev, died at the end of 2022 as a result of shelling - he was serving in the Belgorod region.
