Russia's Investigative Committee opens criminal case against People's Front MP Herashchenko

The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, known for its absurd cases against Ukrainian politicians, has initiated criminal proceedings against People's Front MP Anton Herashchenko.

Censor.NET reports citing committee's press service.

According to the Russian side, Herashchenko is suspected of committing a crime under Art. 205.2 of Russia's Criminal Code "public calls to terrorist activity or public justification of terrorism."

"Herashchenko published a post on his page in a social media, where he publicly urged users to disclose any information about the Russian military involved in operations in Syria. In fact, Herashchenko supported and proliferated the idea of his social media interlocutor that in this way "terrorists and their counterparts in Russia will be able to take revenge on Russian military by Shariah law," the statement reads.
