Photo: Denis Tverskoy Court of Moscow appointed by Vyshinsky/TASS to the human rights activist and the director of the movement "For Human Rights" Lev Ponomarev a fine of 300 thousand rubles for an uncoordinated action which took place near the building of FSB of Russia on Lubyanka on May 13 this year. The court provided for its payment to the human rights activist of 60 days. Reported about this Business FM in court. "He was found guilty of repeated violation of the rules of holding a meeting (Part 8 of Article 20.2 of the Administrative Code)" — the representative of court told. This article prescribes for citizens fine at the rate from 150 thousand to 300 thousand rubles, or obligatory works for a period of 40 till 200 o'clock, or administrative detention for a period of up to 30 days. Ponomarev said Business FM that will appeal against this decision. According to him if the Moscow City Court does not cancel it, he expects that to it supporters will help to raise money. "I have a crowd funding campaign on the website of the movement "For Human Rights" — he told. — It is the best of all if people subscribe and monthly pay a contribution. We began it on May 20 and less than in a month on a subscription collected about 100 thousand rubles". However, the human rights activist expects that it will not be required to pay a penalty to him and the higher instance will cancel the decision of district court. "This decision so absurd that, in my opinion, there are chances to cancel it" — Ponomarev believes. The human rights activist carried out on May 13 "a national descent" near FSB building on Lubyanka. The action which is not coordinated with the authorities was devoted to the beginning of court sessions on high-profile cases of "Network" and "New greatness". In case papers it is said that Ponomarev acted as the organizer and the participant of a picket which proceeded a procession along a number of streets in the downtown. In court Lev Ponomarev did not recognize commission of administrative offense. He said that "in any procession did not participate because he was in cafe at this time". "I am punished already for the fifth time for the fact that I try to be an intermediary between the power and society — he told. — We many times tried to coordinate actions: reduced the number of participants, suggested not to block streets, but all the time refused to us". According to him, on May 12 on the page on Facebook he invited to come to FSB building on Lubyanka without posters and the sound-amplifying equipment. Originally the meeting was appointed to May 28, but the human rights activist was informed on it for an hour prior to a meeting, and as a result hearing was postponed. Hearing was also postponed on June 4 as Ponomarev departed on the international conference to Warsaw. Tverskoy Court sent on December 5, 2018 Ponomarev under arrest for 25 days for an action at Lubyanka Square on October 28 in support of persons involved in criminal cases of "New greatness" and "Network". The court found him guilty of repeated violation of an order of holding an action (Part 8 of Article 20.2 of the Code of the Russian Federation on Administrative Offences). The Moscow City Court reduced on December 7 the imposed sentence to 16 days. At the same time the court refused to suspend administrative detention of the human rights activist, for this purpose
