Member of Public Chamber arrested for fakes in Donetsk


First went



On January 20, it became known that the infamous blogger and part-time member of the DPR Public Chamber, Alexander Bolotin, was detained. The fact that Bolotin disappeared was reported by his relatives. Within a few hours it became known that the blogger had been arrested; Interior Ministry officials seized equipment from his house.

On January 21, the press center of the DPR Ministry of Internal Affairs made an official statement according to which Alexander Bolotin was detained on suspicion of committing a crime under Part 1 of Art. 328 of the Criminal Code of the DPR (actions aimed at inciting hatred and enmity committed in public).

Law enforcement officials also said that the suspect was caught posting materials on the network "containing knowingly false, unconfirmed information aimed at inciting hatred and enmity, as well as defaming the honor, dignity and business reputation of the authorities and law enforcement agencies of the Donetsk People’s Republic."

Martyr or madman?


Alexander Bolotin gained scandalous fame in LDNR due to his controversial publications on social networks. The relatively innocent, albeit furious, nature of the blogger’s publications gradually took on an increasingly scandalous character, until finally a video appeared in which the drunk-looking blogger walked obscenely through the fighters of the DPR People’s Police. The reason for the dissatisfaction of Bolotin was the shooting, presumably from the NM DNI.

Faced with the hurricane reaction of the public (and the very likely threat of an unpleasant conversation with the fighters of the people's militia), Alexander Bolotin apologized publicly, but soon became emboldened, and after he managed to become a member of the DPR Public Chamber, he finally believed in himself and entered into a public and extremely unpleasant conflict with the head of the Public Chamber, Alexander Kofman.

In recent weeks, Bolotin has come forward with aggressive criticism of the authorities, in particular, Minister of Internal Affairs Wild. Probably, the patience of the authorities burst, and Bolotin was arrested.

How did he serve in Purification?


It is not known how and why Bolotin was included in the Public Chamber - the extremely specific behavior of the blogger initially aroused suspicions that Alexander Bolotin needed professional help. It is likely that the former member of the OP DPR should not be judged, but rather help him. Nevertheless, the fact remains: Alexander Bolotin is under arrest and theoretically this adventure could end for him with five years in prison.

However, the fate of a single blogger is not so important - in the end, Bolotin said so much that during the late head of the DPR, Alexander Zakharchenko, one third would be enough to go to the basement. The precedent itself is more important - the republic for the first time used legislative mechanisms in order to defend itself against attacks and to hold accountable for the distribution of fakes.

By itself, this moment is quite positive - in the old days, journalists and bloggers who took an unfriendly or critical attitude to the authorities of the LDNR were simply beaten and expelled from the republics. In addition, it is likely that an active fight against fakes will have a beneficial effect on the quality of the information that many authors disseminate without hiding on social networks.

At the same time, a quite logical question arises: will the authorities in LDNR be able to maintain moderation? Will the Donbass media community have to face a witch hunt? Everyone, including the author, will soon find out.

    You must answer for your words. what It is clear that for public insults to the authorities, a decent punishment shines under the law. Well, the court will figure out to what extent is guilty and how to punish.

      How many are still in LDNR ... it seems that a person lives and works nearby, smiles beautifully at you, says the right words, and then suddenly turns out to be a bastard or a traitor ... such are the things.

    Hence the morality of the coast should not be confused and star too.

    The phenomenon is already "ordinary and familiar." Without control and on time prophylaxis, they will cross the boundaries of decency permitted more than once.
    In short, you need to clean the information field! For objective reasons, by the way.

      If a person is public, is related to a certain elected body, then morality must be observed. And not in a drunken state to bear the devil-what. Let the public council only be an advisory body, but the punishment in this case should be stricter than for an ordinary resident of the DPR.

        The punishment must be equal for everyone! This does not cancel out such an action as org conclusions .... kick in the ass, from the service and all business.

    Of course, you must answer for the "unmasking" of the policy. But it would be better to drive the "former" in power.

    Interestingly, but on the VO website it was not marked? I didn’t see the material at the level of gossip (I hope I will not see it), but the comments .......

    Impunity breeds permissiveness, and when everything is possible and nothing falls for it, then we get complete lawlessness. This is already dangerous. Ukraine is an example of this. The authorities must suppress this in the bud, and in the realities of the republics, of course. The main thing is not to overtake the stick))))

    Member of Public Chamber arrested for fakes in Donetsk

    To be honest, from the article I did not understand what these fakes are.
    If even for his well-known statement that the militia was the first to open fire, and not the APU that he made six months ago, he was not touched, then what kind of fakes are it now that they sent him “to the basements” for educational work, it's hard to imagine.

      the fact that both sides open fire is not a secret! But for whom and why it is a different question. Our people shoot at the Nazis in the field, the Nazis shoot at our cities where old people and children. We have no where to retreat. Well, they slammed him when he blundered (most likely for a big *** in the organs)

    Himself from Donetsk (the admin will not let you lie) - a lot of * fishing is wandering around with us and even more of those who have "moved" (in fact, our huts do not sell all nishtyaks, pay a penny and drive the blizzard constantly). Type of your Navalny and Dog with a horse. I am glad that in our bodies the conversation is short .... to the basement)). The state should be able to protect itself, and not wipe the spit, especially from "their"!

    “A very decent person”, literally “an star” of the DNR Public Chamber. If the Organized Crime Control Department of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the DNI hadn’t “screwed” it under the completely criminal article of the DNR Criminal Code, the next topic of the “blog” would be “It is difficult to collect broken teeth with broken hands.” He just lucky to surrender to the justice. The desire "for a lucrative bilhosti" remained. Not only military personnel of the DPR of the DPR will support us. We did not go anywhere from Donbass, people are unremarkable, angry and with a good memory.

    “At the same time, a completely logical question arises: will the authorities in LDNR be able to keep to moderation? Will the Donbass media community have to face witch hunts? Everyone, including the author, will soon find out.”

    As before, when A.V. Zakharchenko "defective" did not send "minefields" with their feet to mine. From you, Yegor, as if from a goat - "stink a lot - it makes little sense" (in the category IN Opinion). Find out the "upcoming witch hunt" - the "many faces". Who do you need? They say about such people: "I am not right, I am not left, I am no, because VALENOK."

    I would like to see landing for spreading false information. This is a very serious weapon in the right hands. The simplest examples: watch videos on YouTube dedicated to the coronovirus in China, everything is slid together very convincingly and competently, only there is no truth. And it’s easier to get a panic among the population by steaming turnip. Therefore, my opinion is that fakes should be planted
