Timur Bulatov, a Russian activist who has boasted about denouncing LGBT people and Kremlin critics to the authorities, is now in the line of fire himself, charged with discrediting the Russian armed forces. A notice posted to Moscow’s court website showed Bulatov, an outspoken supporter of Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine, was charged under a censorship law that has been used to punish critics of the war. He told the Ostorozhno Novosti Telegram channel that he did not understand the origin of the charge, which can incur a fine of up to 50,000 roubles ($545) for a first offence. Repeat offenders risk jail terms.
