Crimean professor who was jailed twice last year for Ukrainian songs fined $1,300 for social media post about Russian murders of civilians

Andrey Belozerov, a former professor who lost his job and was convicted on charges of “discrediting” the Russian army and “displaying Nazi symbolism” in September after he played a video with a song about Bayraktar drones in between classes, has been fined 100,000 rubles (about $1,300) on fresh “discrediting” charges, according to the outlet OVD-Info.

A Simferopol court issued the new charges in response to a social media post Belozerov made in October 2022 about the murder of Ukrainian civilians by Russian forces.

In November, Belozerov was arrested for 14 days after he posted a patriotic Ukrainian song on his social media page.
