Under one of the posts on the social network dedicated to the topic of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the man left the following comment: “I saw a Russian, **** on the head.” In response to criticism, he also wrote: “My words, my freedom or lack of freedom. If anything, I will sit, and you will continue to pee in your pants.

As a result, the man was prosecuted after a complaint to the police.
