Cnn: “19-year-old Russian risks years in prison for anti-war social media posts”

Olesya Krivtsova sports an anti-Putin tattoo on one ankle and a bracelet that tracks her every move on the other. The 19-year-old from the Arkhangelsk region of Russia must wear the device while she is under house arrest after being accused of a social media post that Russian authorities say discredits the Russian military and condones terrorism. This was reported by ‘CNN’ explaining that Krivtsova would risk years in prison and that she was added to the list of terrorists and extremists, on a par with Isis, al Qaeda and the Taliban, for having published a story on Instagram about the explosion of the Crimean bridge in October criticizing Russia for invading Ukraine.

Krivtsova, a student at the university in the northwestern city of Arkhangelsk, CNN points out, “is also facing criminal charges for discrediting the Russian military in an alleged repost critical of the war in a student chat on the Russian social network VK”.

Currently, Krivtsova is under house arrest in her mother’s apartment in Severodvinsk, Arkhangelsk Region, banned from going online and using other forms of communication. “Olesya’s case is not the first, nor is it the last,” Krivtsova’s lawyer Alexei Kichin told CNN.
