On May 12, the police drafted a protocol on the administrative offense against a member of the regional council of the 'Open Russia' movement in Chuvashia Semyon Kochkin for reposting a video of the American satirical TV-show 'The Daily Show'.
Human rights defender Alexey Glukhov suggested that this video contains a symbol of the banned organization. They were going to convict the activist on the day of drawing up the protocol, but the Moscow District Court of Cheboksary towards evening. The police instituted proceedings under Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses ('Propaganda or public demonstration of Nazi attributes or symbols, or attributes or symbols of extremist organizations, or other attributes or symbols propagated or publicly demonstrated which are prohibited by federal laws').
In a dubbed Russian version of The Daily Show, reposted by Kochkin in 2015, the host talked about how Chechen girls deceived the militants of ISIS (organization banned in Russia).
Earlier, with the assistance of the Center for Combating Extremism (Center "E"), Chuvash activists and oppositionists were repeatedly convicted for reposting news with the forbidden slogan of Orthodoxy.
