The prosecutor’s office appealed against the acquittal in the case of Yulia Tsvetkova

The prosecutor's office appealed against the acquittal in the case of the artist Yulia Tsvetkova. This was told by her mother Anna Khodyreva in her Facebook.

“It is possible that now is the most dangerous time in all three years of trial and investigation. Protection resources are running out, Yulia and her relatives have little strength, there is less and less support and publicity. And the resources of the state are not limited, and the prosecutor’s office really wants to protect the “honor of the uniform,” she writes.

The case against Tsvetkova under the article “Illegal production and circulation of pornographic materials using the Internet” (clause “b” part 3 of article 242 of the Criminal Code) was opened on November 20, 2019. The basis was the denunciation of Timur Bulatov, whose main activity is the dismissal of teachers who were seen in LGBT “propaganda”.

He complained about Tsvetkova because of the body-positive drawings of women and vulvas, which she published in her public on VKontakte "Vagina Monologues". The investigation has been going on for more than two years. During this time, Tsvetkova was in a pre-trial detention center, under house arrest, and then under house arrest.

On July 15, the Central District Court of Komsomolsk-on-Amur acquitted the artist on rehabilitating grounds.
