The Preobrazhensky District Court of Moscow sentenced the municipal deputy and Pussy Riot participant Lyusya Stein to a year of restriction of freedom for a “sanitary case”. About it informs Mediazona citing Pussy Riot.
Stein was found guilty of inciting violations of sanitary standards (part 1 of Art. 236 of the Criminal Code with the application of Part 4 of Art. 33 of the Criminal Code) at a January rally in support of Alexei Navalny. Earlier, the state prosecution asked to appoint her a sentence of 2 years of restriction of freedom.
According to the court’s decision, Stein is prohibited from leaving home from 22:00 to 6:00, changing his place of residence, attending public events and leaving Moscow.
Earlier, sentences in the “sanitary case” were passed to Navalny’s comrades-in-arms, Oleg Stepanov, Lyubov Sobol, Kira Yarmysh, Nikolai Lyaskin and Oleg Navalny. All of them, with the exception of Oleg Navalny, were assigned a restriction of freedom. Navalny’s brother received a suspended year.
The case also includes the head of the “Alliance of Doctors” Anastasia Vasilyeva, the military unit Dmitry Baranovsky and the participant of Pussy Riot Maria Alekhina.
According to the investigation, the persons involved in the “sanitary case” published on social networks calls for a rally in support of Navalny and other political prisoners on 23 January. According to the employees of the Investigative Committee, because of this, protesters arrived in the center of Moscow, who were supposed to be in quarantine, which allegedly created a threat of “mass disease of people.”
