In Russia, a court issued an arrest in absentia for Jamala: the Ukrainian singer faces up to 10 years
A Russian court has arrested the famous Ukrainian singer of Crimean Tatar origin, Jamala, in absentia. The reason was the People's Artist of Ukraine's truthful posts about the inhumane war crimes of the Russian invaders, particularly in the Kyiv region - Bucha and Irpin, which were occupied at the beginning of the full-scale war.
The decision was officially confirmed by the Moscow Prosecutor's Office, as reported by propaganda media.
"A preventive measure in the form of detention was imposed on Susana Jamaladinova (the star's real name - ed.) in absentia. The criminal case will be sent to the Basmanny District Court of Moscow for consideration on the merits in the absence of the accused, who is on the international wanted list," the statement said.
The singer is charged under a criminal article on the "public dissemination of manifestly false information about the Russian Armed Forces under the guise of reliable reports, committed on the grounds of national hatred." Traditionally, the aggressor country cynically calls statements and publications about the occupiers' terrorist activities "fake news."
Moreover, the Russian agency refers to specific posts by Jamala, where she condemns Russia's aggression and the crimes of Russian soldiers in Bucha and Irpin, which, by the way, shocked the whole world with their inhumanity.
Thus, the reason for Jamala's arrest in Russia was her words: "While the world is talking and not acting, Russian executioners are acting. They rape 10-year-old girls, enjoy torturing civilians in basements and shooted everyone around them... the elderly, women, and children. Every city liberated from the occupiers is a huge mass grave. About 400 people died in Bucha alone."
According to propagandists, the star faces up to ten years in prison.
It should be noted that the day before, the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs put the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 winner on the wanted list under a criminal article on "spreading fakes about the Russian army." Read more about this here.
The singer later reacted to her arrest, noting that she was not at all surprised by these actions on the part of Russia. And although Jamala herself was not afraid of the Russian Interior Ministry, her family was very scared. See the artist's reaction to her "wanted" in the article.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, the famous Ukrainian TV presenter Masha Efrosinina was included in the list of terrorists and extremists of the Russian Federation. In addition, the card of the star, who actively tells the world the truth about the crimes of the Russian occupiers in Ukraine, appeared in the search database of the Russian Interior Ministry. All the details are in the article.
