Management of the FAS of Russia in Arkhangelsk Oblast FAS did not recognize banners with slogan «Stop Shies: We demand the project’s cancellation and freedom to activists» as social advertising and fined their customer Alexander Mironov for 2 thousand rubles, reported the correspondent of "7x7" after the meeting of the FAS.
The Agency accused the activist of violating Part 1 of Article 14.3 of the Code of Administrative Offences of the Russian Federation («Violating the Legislation on Advertising»).
The first billboard appeared in the center of Plesetsk on July 11. The other two were placed at the entrance to the village of Savinsky and in the village of Severoonezhsk the next day. They were ordered by entrepreneur Alexander Mironov.
Mironov's lawyer, lawyer of the Public Verdict Fund Ernest Mezak wrote in community «Pomorye Is Not a Dump!» that all charges against his client were baseless and he did not break the law on advertizing:
- If the Governor of the Arkhangelsk region and his henchmen does not like social advertising, it still remains social.
Mironov's protection is going to appeal against the decision of the FAS.
