On the evening of July 12, 2022, one day before the end of his 15-day jail term, Ilya Yashin was taken in for questioning and charged with “disseminating false information about the Russian Army motivated by hatred” (article 207.3, part 2, sub-paragraph d). The charge is based on the videos broadcast on the politician’s YouTube channel, in which he discussed the events in Ukraine. The trial took place the next day, and the court sent Mr. Yashin to a detention center until September 12, 2022. Then the arrest was extended for 2 months.
