The Moscow Zamoskvoretsky Court ruled to expel the blogger and native of Tajikistan Ruslan Bobiev, who was detained because of a photo with the Basil’s Cathedral in the background. About it informs TASS with reference to the press service of the court.
“The court found Ruslan (according to his passport – Muzaffar) guilty under Part 1 of Article 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (disobedience to a lawful order of a police officer) and sentenced him to 10 days’ arrest with a fine of 5,000 rubles and administrative expulsion from the Russian Federation,” – said the press service.
The arrest of Bobiev and his girlfriend Anastasia Chistova became known on September 30. Shortly before the arrest, the blogger published a photo in front of the capital’s Cathedral of St. Basil the Blessed. The picture shows a girl squatting in front of Bobiev in a jacket with the words “police”. After the arrest, the Ministry of Internal Affairs published a video with Bobiev’s apologies. Chistova was arrested for 10 days on charges of disobeying the police.
Earlier it was reported that the materials concerning Bobiev were transferred to the territorial division of the Investigative Committee, where the issue of initiating a criminal case against him is being decided.
