In Zaporozhye, they showed what expulsion looks like for discrediting Russia


The authorities of the part of Zaporozhye occupied by the Russian troops showed what the process of expulsion from the region looks like for “activities aimed at obstructing the work of the military-civil administration bodies” and “discrediting the bodies of the Russian Federation”. The video was published by the civil-military administration of the Zaporozhye region.

Decrees on the introduction of such a measure as expulsion from the territories of the regions were issued in July by the authorities of Zaporozhye and Kherson region. They prohibit on the territory of the regions the obstruction of the activities of civil-military administrations and volunteers, the discrediting of Russia’s foreign policy and the actions of Russian government agencies, the dissemination of deliberately false information about them, as well as the creation of a threat to public security in other forms. Public events without the consent of the current authorities and “creating a threat to public safety in other forms” are also prohibited.

Those who violated the norms of the decree can be forcibly expelled from the region within 24 hours by the decision of the military commandant.

In Russia, citizens may also face liability for discrediting the use of the Russian Armed Forces: both administrative (Article 20.3.3. of the Administrative Code) and criminal (Article 280.3 of the Criminal Code). According to the Administrative Code, the punishment provides for a fine of up to 50-100 thousand rubles, according to the Criminal Code, from fines to imprisonment for up to five years.

Since the beginning of hostilities in Ukraine, Russia has controlled the southern and central parts of the Zaporozhye region (Melitopol, Berdyansk, Energodar). The Kherson region is controlled almost entirely by the Russian authorities.
