As have informed in law enforcement bodies, the statement from the Governor was received on June 22. The official demanded to assess and ban him for offensive video that was published on June 13, and gathered over 15 thousand hits.

According to the lawyer Oksana Mikhalkina, to achieve excitation of criminal case the official will not work:
– First, find the distribution of this video is extremely difficult and almost impossible, because YouTube servers are in the USA, which are necessary in this case, the data simply do not provide. Secondly, this video, as I understand it, is connected with the personality of one individual. Therefore, for the article “inciting hatred or hostility, and humiliation of human dignity”. If we were talking in General about the officials, then it would be possible to look for signs.
But in the civil law field officer can try to prove that the video defames his honor, dignity and business reputation. It is necessary to hold examination, which establish that it is true. Then he can seek the removal of the video, a public apology (in case the distributors will be found) and compensation of moral harm, – the lawyer told.
