Regarding the 19-year-old native of Pskov, Marat Nikandrov, entered by the Ministry of Justice in the register of “foreign agents” on his own application, a second protocol will be drawn up under the administrative article on the abuse of freedom of mass information. He informed the editors of Sever.Realia about this.
According to him, the second notification from Roskomnadzor about the need to appear for the preparation of the report came to him on the evening of November 20.
According to the second protocol, they want to fine Nikandrov for the publication on the resource “Daily Fax” (registered as a media outlet, administered by Nikandrov) of material from the German publication Deutsche Welle, which is recognized in Russia as a “foreign agent”, with the headline “The EU summit will prepare the ground for an embargo on Russian diamonds.” . The protocol, as in the first case, will be drawn up for Nikandrov as an official.
On November 20, Nikandrov’s lawyer, Leonid Solovyev, visited Roskomndazor, where he was handed the first protocol drawn up against Nikandrov – for the publication of a clip on the Nastoyashe Vremya TV channel about the termination of parental rights of the former editor of the First Channel, Maryna Ovsyannikova.
