Murmansk activist went to a solo picket in support of Pussy Riot. She was arrested and fined. After 10 years, the ECHR managed to prove that it was illegal. This was told by Ernest Mezak, activist for human rights.
On August 17, 2012, Nailya Ibragimova, a Murmansk resident, went to a single picket in support of Pussy Riot on the day the verdict was announced to the group members. She held the picket in a balaclava, for which the court found Ibragimova guilty of violating the rules for holding rallies a month later. The judge appointed her 10 thousand rubles of fine.
According to human rights activist Ernest Mezak, he helped the girl file a complaint with the ECHR. On August 30, 2022, in Strasbourg, the court settled the claim. It recognized Ibragimova as a victim of a violation of freedom of expression. She was awarded 7,500 euros in compensation for non-pecuniary damage and 242 euros in compensation for the fine paid. Now the human rights activist intends to obtain the payment of this money to the activist from the Russian Federation.
On June 11, 2022, president Vladimir Putin signed a law according to which judgments of the ECHR that entered into force after March 15, 2022 are not subject to execution in Russia. This happened after Russia withdrew from the Human Rights Council.
Some illegally convicted Russians have already faced this. In early July, the ECHR awarded compensation of 26,000 euros to Alexei Ivanov, a citizen of Krasnoyarsk, who served 10 years in a colony on false charges. But he won't get any money.
