Moscow municipal lawmaker Galyamina challenges sentence for rally rules breaches
MOSCOW, January 13 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s municipal lawmaker Yulia Galyamina has appealed a 2-year suspended sentence given her for repeated violations of rally holding regulations, according to the press service of the Tverskoy District Court.
Galyamina was found guilty in December.
In early July 2020, Galyamina published on the Internet posts calling to participate in an unauthorized rally in central Moscow on July 15. However, in the last 180 days the woman was repeatedly brought to administrative liability for similar violations, according to the statement.
Investigators believe that her actions have an intentional character and must be examined in accordance with Russia’s criminal legislation.
In July, the city’s Tagansky District Court fined Galyamina 200,000 rubles ($2,700) for an illegal action near the Moscow Directorate of the Interior Ministry.
