The court fined Nikita Tushkanov for 90 thousand rubles under three articles. He was charged with discrediting the military (twice) and petty hooliganism for posts in social networks. Tushkanov reported this to 7x7.
According to Nikita Tushkanov, the police drew up four protocols against him. He was charged with articles on petty hooliganism, demonstrations of Nazi symbols and discrediting the military (twice). The court has already fined him under three articles.
At the same time, Tushkanov said that he had deleted all the posts even before the Russian authorities had introduced liability for discrediting the Russian army on March 4. He is going to appeal all the fines.
In March 2021, the teacher was dismissed for supporting Alexei Navalny. He published posts in social networks and held a picket with a poster saying, "Keep silent or die" on January 23. In January, officials already asked the activist to resign voluntarily.
After that, Tushkanov held a one-person picket in front of the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Komi Republic. He stood with the same poster saying, "Keep silent or die" in order to draw attention to the silencing of teachers' problems and the delay in the judicial proceedings for his reinstatement. The court refused to reinstate the ex-teacher.
