The Preobrazhensky District Court sentenced Anastasia Vasilyeva, the head of the medical trade union “Alliance of Doctors”, to a year of restriction of freedom, reported in the press service of the Moscow courts.
Vasilyeva cannot leave the house from 22:00 to 6:00, change place of residence without approval, travel outside Moscow and attend mass events. She also needs to report to the inspection twice a month.
The prosecutor’s office requested a year and eight months of restriction of freedom for Vasilyeva. Vasilyeva was the last of the defendants in the “sanitary case” who was not sentenced.
The so-called “sanitary case” was initiated after a protest in support of Navalny on January 23. According to the investigation, the oppositionist’s comrades-in-arms and activists called on people on social networks to participate in a rally on Pushkin Square in Moscow, thus creating a threat of coronavirus infection.
In total, 11 people were involved in the “sanitary case”, among them: Alexey Navalny’s brother Oleg, FBK lawyer Lyubov Sobol, Navalny’s press secretary Kira Yarmysh, Pussy Riot participant Maria Alekhina and others. The courts passed sentences, according to which the defendants received from a year to one and a half years of restriction of freedom.
