According to Dozhd, the meeting was held in the absence of the accused herself and her lawyer, despite the fact that the article does not allow for this.
Moreover, the pensioner is awaiting trial under the article on disobedience to a police officer. As the lawyer Nadezhda Nizovkina pointed out, the accusation is connected with the fact that the pensioner was broadcasting video directly from the police department.
It's worth reminding that in March last year, Filonova was fined 20 thousand rubles for taking part in an uncoordinated action in memory of Boris Nemtsov. It is reported that Filonova is dependent on a disabled child. Her pension is 11.4 thousand rubles.
It should be reminded that detentions of pensioners have become commonplace in Minsk during protest actions last year. In December, for example, during the march of pensioners, citizens, including those over 80, were detained.
