Moscow's Preobrazhensky Court sentenced Anastasia Vasilyeva, head of the Alliance of Doctors* (the organization is included in the register of Non-profit organizations performing the function of a foreign agent in Russia), to a year of restriction of freedom.

This is due to the case of violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules during protest actions on 23 January.

She was found guilty of incitement to violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules, which led to a massive illness of people, writes "Interfax".

Now Anastasia Vasilyeva will be prohibited from leaving home at night, as well as from outside the city of Moscow.

Lawyers for the head of the alliance argue that this verdict will be appealed in court. She does not admit her guilt.

Protests in support of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny were held in Russian cities on January 23. After that, criminal cases were opened against ten activists for appeals to participate in uncoordinated rallies. In addition to Anastasia Vasilyeva, cases were also opened against the brother of the Russian oppositionist Oleg, lawyer of the organization Alexey Navalny, Lyubov Sobol, and others.

Earlier, Anastasia Vasilyeva asked not to associate her trade union with the organizations of Alexey Navalny in the future, since the oppositionist's supporters no longer support the medical trade union. “Only the need for us was gone - they forgot about us. Used and thrown away”, - she said.
