Artur Dmitriev from St Petersburg went out to protest against the war in a sole demonstration with a hand-written slogan: “War has brought so much sorrow making it impossible to forget. There is no forgiveness for those who, again, are plotting aggressive plans.”
Who said that? President Putin himself. These words were pronounced at the Red Square in Moscow on the 9th of May 2021 during the parade celebrating the 76th anniversary of the end of WW2. Artur Dmitriev was arrested and fined 30 000 RUB for “discrediting the purpose of the use of the Russian troops outside Russian Federation”. The author of this discrediting phrase was not affected.
