RUSSIA: A Russian courtroom on Wednesday sentenced a journalist to seven years in jail for criticizing the Ukraine offensive in social media posts.
Roman Ivanov, 51, was discovered responsible of spreading “false data” about Russia’s armed forces and punished beneath Moscow’s strict navy censorship legal guidelines.
Moscow has used legal guidelines in opposition to “discrediting” the armed forces or publishing “false data” to stamp out public criticism of its full-scale navy offensive on Ukraine.
“Peace and freedom,” Ivanov shouted as he left the courtroom after the sentence.
