Moscow police refused to initiate an attack on Daria Gorbacheva, who painted over campaign posters of candidates from United Russia. About this she reported OVD-Info.
According to the girl, the police considered that there was no corpus delicti in the actions of the man who beat Daria. In addition, the attacker turned to the police with a counterclaim for bodily harm.
On August 28, Gorbacheva drew a circle with a crossed out line on one of the stands with photographs of United Russia candidates for the State Duma. After that, the man grabbed and dragged the girl, and when she tried to escape, hit her in the face with his hand. According to Daria, the attacker had a ring on his finger. After the blow, the girl had blood on her face.
Passers-by called an ambulance, and the doctors took the victim to the hospital, where they put several stitches on her. The attacker fled from the scene of the crime.
The next day, Gorbacheva wrote a statement to the police. The officers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs accepted him, but also drew up a protocol on petty hooliganism against the girl (Article 20.1 of the Administrative Code). In total, Daria was held in the department for about six hours, and then released with a fine of 500 rubles.
