December 23 this year in the case of insulting a veteran of the Great Patriotic War due to a comment on the social network also was detained Smolensk blogger Alexey Chervyakov.
According to the ministry, in the period from November 16 to 17, 2021, Chervyakov “disseminated information expressing obvious disrespect for society about the days of military glory of Russia associated with the defense of the Fatherland, and information that humiliates the honor and dignity of one of the veterans.”
How wrote “Kommersant”, under the post that graffiti with a portrait of veteran, anti-aircraft gunner Viktor Yakunin will appear on the facade of the city school, Chervyakov rudely “wondered what would give the school such an image” and “during a discussion with other users, he roughly remade the words “hero” and “veteran” “. In addition, he criticized the Russian authorities and expressed his opinion about the harmfulness of the “cult of war” in Russia.
At present, the question of choosing a preventive measure for Chervyakov is being decided.
In March 2021, a criminal case on the “rehabilitation of Nazism” was excited in relation to the former teacher of the RANEPA and St. Petersburg State University of Economics, Professor Valery Matveev.
The investigation found that at an online seminar for teachers of the Leningrad region on conducting lessons in memory of victims of the Holocaust and soldiers of the Red Army in schools, Matveyev “committed a violation”, namely “in the affirmative form he told the webinar listeners that there was no mass extermination of Jews during World War II , called the Holocaust “myth” and “fiction”. “
“It was impossible to pass the 6 million victims through all the concentration camps. Therefore, this figure – 6 million – is nothing more than a fiction. We, as representatives of education, must bring the truth to the masses. Conclusion: There was simply no Holocaust in that volume, ”the professor said. In addition, he denied that the Germans had stoves necessary for burning people, and explained that the gas chambers found were used for disinfection.
“Thus, the citizen publicly committed actions to rehabilitate Nazism, namely the denial of the facts established by the verdict of the International Military Tribunal for the trial and punishment of the main war criminals,” the prosecutor’s office said in a press release.
