Mrs. Crimea 2022 fined, her friend arrested in Crimea for singing Chervona Kalyna
The occupatiers' court in Crimea fined "Mrs. Crimea 2022" Olha Valeyeva 40,000 rubles and arrested her friend for 10 days for singing "Chervona Kalyna" at home and posting the video on the Internet, writes "Inzhyr Media."
According to the so-called court, the performance of the song discredits the Russian army (Article 20.3.3 of the Criminal Code of Russia) and is also a demonstration of Nazi symbols (Article 20.3 of the Criminal Code of the RF).
The so-called "court" sentenced Olha Valeyeva to a fine of 40,000 rubles, as she has underage children, and her friend was arrested for 10 days.
As of now, Olha Valeyeva has already taken down the video of the Ukrainian song performance from her Instagram page.
"The court found the women guilty of committing administrative offenses. One of them has been sentenced to 10 days of administrative arrest, and the other has been sentenced to an administrative fine of 40,000 rubles," the so-called Ministry of Internal Affairs of Crimea said in a statement.
In addition, Russian security forces forced the girls to apologize on camera for performing a Ukrainian song.
As IMI reported, the prosecutor's office of the ARC and Sevastopol opened a criminal case against pro-Russian Crimean blogger Oleksandr Talipov for "inciting nation-based enmity and hatred" in his Telegram channel "TalipoV Online Z."
