11:37 14/01/2021

MOSCOW, January 14 (RAPSI) – A defamation case against Alexey Navalny over his statements about veteran of the Great Patriotic War Ignat Artemenko will be resumed on January 20, RAPSI has learnt in the press service of Moscow’s Babushkinsky District Court.

A justice of peace suspended hearing of the case because of the blogger’s illness in late August 2020.

In early June, Russia Today TV channel published a video where the 93-year Artemenko and other respondents were reading the Constitution preamble. Following that, Navalny released a video with comments on his social networks insulting the veteran.

Navalny was charged with defamation. If convicted he could face up to 200 hours of community service. Navalny pleads not guilty.
