This was reported to Vedomosti in the Tverskoy Court of Moscow.
Grebenshchikov was found guilty under Part 1 of Art. 20.3.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation. The maximum penalty under this article provides for a fine of up to 50,000 rubles.
Grebenshchikov’s administrative protocol was drawn up on May 18. According to the materials of the case, the basis for this was an interview on one of the YouTube channels, where he “made statements discrediting the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.”
Earlier, Sergei Tsekov, a member of the Federation Council Committee on International Affairs, proposed adopting a law on the deprivation of property of citizens who left Russia. According to him, this is “the most terrible punishment” for a person who conducts subversive activities against Russia. Among those who may fall under the law if adopted, Tsekov named Grebenshchikov, as well as other cultural figures who actively comment on the conflict in Ukraine. Grebenshchikov now lives in London. He left Russia shortly after the start of the special operation on February 24, 2022.
