The Russian Investigative Commission has announced that there will be no criminal charges against Anton Krasovsky, a Russian journalist accused of shooting and drowning Ukrainian children in October.
The presenter’s comments on the “Russia Today” channel sparked outrage on social networks and he was fired from his post by RT’s editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan.
The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation has opened an investigation to determine whether Krasovsky violated the law by calling for the “burning” and “drowning” of Ukrainian children.
Yesterday, the minister in charge of the committee, Alexandre Bastrykin, made his decision through a press release.
“In the appeal in question, I suggest that there is no evidence of commission or preparation of offenses against or with the participation of the minors”, we read in the judgment.
According to the Independent Network Medusa, The Russian publicist has yet to respond to the verdict. But he regretted it a few weeks ago.
“I always want to be better than the enemy. My country wanted to be better than the enemy, and I was a fool, I confused good with evil, I was wrong. I don’t know if I can be forgiven. For my part, I will never forgive myself,” he wrote in his Telegram account in October.
