Circumstances of the arrest:
On July 31, he posted on his Twitter page a post in which, according to investigators, there was a criminal intent aimed at inciting hostility and hatred towards all law enforcement officials and members of their families.
On August 4, NTV and other federal media quoted this tweet, and later the Investigative Committee announced the detention of Sinitsa and the indictment of him. At the same time, the decision to institute the Sinitsa case of August 3 and the same day was an arrest.
Vladislav was charged under Part 2 of Article 282 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation. Presnensky court arrested Vladislav for a period of 2 months, until October 3. At trial, investigators claimed that Tit was trying to destroy her phone. And also that he participated in the protest on August 3.
On the second day of the examination of the merits, on September 3, a survey was conducted of two witnesses of the National Guard, who said they perceived the words posted in the post as a threat. The expert's findings from the Center for Sociocultural Expertise, which were found on a tweet posted by Sinitsa, calls for violent actions against security officials, signs of threats and incitement to hatred, were also announced.
It turned out that the examination was carried out by people without specialized education. The defense side interrogated experts who analyzed the publication of the Titmouse upon their request. A linguist from the ANO "Center for Independent Expertises" and an expert from the "Center for the conduct of forensic examinations and studies" criticized the examinations prepared by the investigation. Both experts talked about poor-quality research.
Vladislav himself claimed that he had not called anyone to anything, he did not consider himself guilty, although he did not deny the fact of posting the statement. The court appointed Vladislav 5 years in prison in a penal colony.



Write a letter to a prisoner
Letters help prisoners to not feel fenced off from the world and gives them an opportunity to be heard. This simple action may seem insignificant but it is real and first-hand support for the prisoners. Letters can be written through Federal Penitentiary Service Letters` system and RosUznik project. Regardless of the service you use, your letter and the answer to it will be censored.

We recommend:

• Read the official through Federal Penitentiary Service Letters` system (Russian only) rules before sending the letter.
• Don't hesitate to write about simple things. Remember, as is often the case, the main thing is to start.
• Write regularly. After the first few weeks, the stream of letters fades. It is very demoralizing for the prisoners. Take a habit to write to prisoners on one or several days a week and try to stick to this schedule.
• The best way is to make letters short and dedicated to one topic. So it will be easier for the prisoner to write an answer.
