The court considered that the investigation did not provide convincing arguments for this. At the trial, they listened to the testimony of witnesses who said that the blogger “insulted them, the authorities, the church, the state and society with her bare buttocks.”

The October District Court of St. Petersburg refused to investigate, which asked to restrict blogger Irina Volkova in her actions. She is accused of offending the feelings of believers because of a picture in shorts against the background of St. Isaac’s Cathedral. This was reported on Telegram by the joint press service of the courts of St. Petersburg.
A criminal case was opened against Volkova under Part 1 of Article 148 (insulting the feelings of believers). The investigation asked to choose a preventive measure in relation to her in the form of a ban on certain actions.
“In the process, the testimony of witnesses was announced, who explained that Volkova had offended them, the authorities, the church, the state and society with her bare buttocks,” the press service said.
In St. Petersburg, the girl was detained for a candid photo at St. Isaac’s Cathedral
Volkova admitted her guilt and repented. According to “Fontanka”, in court she explained that she “played a blogger” and “took pictures crazy.”
