Recently, several so-called "cases for memes" have received a wide public response. More and more people go to court and jail because of seemingly harmless nonsense - like, comment, or repost on social networks. Let's try to figure it out and understand what exactly should not be done on the Web today so as not to get a ticket for the “train to Magadan”.
1. "Funny" meme
You should not publish on your page images that fall within the scope of Article 282 concerning incitement to hatred or enmity. There are examples when people had problems with the law even for publishing ironic images that are directed against this very hostility. Nevertheless, the courts interpreted the plot of the images in a straightforward manner, turning people into criminals.
Thus, you should avoid any pictures, even with a hint of offending someone. We also remember about the “feelings of believers”, which are protected by Article 148 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
2. For repost on bunks
Sadly, people are condemned for promoting something bad (for example, Nazism) if they even leave a historical photograph on their page. The same applies to the demonstration of any extremist symbols and paraphernalia. All of this falls under Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses.
You can also pay for a careless comment with freedom. Any justification for extremist activity, Nazism, terrorism, propaganda of such things, recognition of them as the norm - all this is fraught with problems with the law. However, you should not allow yourself a lot of liberties on other topics. All this also applies to any insults, especially on the basis of religion and nationality.
4. Not funny pictures
Saving pictures to an album on social media can also be dangerous. If the image falls under Articles 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, 20.3 of the Administrative Code or 148 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, the person can be convicted and sent to prison. Across the country, more than one case has been recorded when people were called for likes, saving to an album, as well as posting even historical photographs (for example) with a swastika on their page on the network. Very often the courts interpret this as the propaganda of Nazism. Even pictures of stills from the film can be a reason for persecution. Sad practice shows that people were tried even for inappropriate images from films, which are allowed in Russia at the same time.
5. Liked and forgot
In fact, they cannot be condemned for likes in the country, however, the mechanics of networks are such that a like can be considered by the court as a tool for disseminating information (after all, thanks to it, information on a social network is seen in your feed). If the like content falls somehow under any of the above articles - expect trouble.
