About The criminal case
What is Dmitry charged with?
The police detained Ivanov on the 28th of April right at the doors of the university. The student was charged with recurring offence for organising a public protest (Part 8 Art. 20.2 Administrative Code). Dmitry had spent a week in detention and then was arrested again, this time for 25 days.

The police force did not stop there. They searched the house of Ivanov’s parents on the 2nd of June and charged Dmitry himself with Part 2 Art. 207.3, paragraph “e”: “spreading fake news with a hate motive”. The grounds for criminal proceedings were Dmitry’s posts condemning the ‘special war operation’ on “Protest MSU” Telegram channel.
Ivanov took an interest in politics a long time ago. He has been managing a telegram channel with over 10k followers since 2018. Both the government and ‘concerned’ fellow citizens prosecuted Dmitry for his citizenship views .

Dmitry was arrested at public protest. In 2019 after a demonstration in support of Azat Miftakhov he spent a night at a police station by Moscow State University. In March 2022 anonymous people drew Zs all over Ivanov’s front door and wrote ‘Don’t betray the Motherland, Dima’.

Dmitry won’t be able to graduate university, pass the exams and defend his thesis due to the administrative and criminal cases. He will be spending in pre-trial detention, until court issues the final judgement. The student’s friends and relatives crowdfund the care packages. You can support Dmitry in rubles or cryptocurrency.

"Memorial"* recognized Dmitry as a political prisoner.
