A 60-year-old woman has been placed under house arrest for leaving a note on the grave of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s parents, calling her son a “freak” and a “murderer” and urging them to “take him with them”.
According to a report in Mediazona, the note written by St. Petersburg resident Irina Tsybaneva at the grave of Putin’s parents, Maria Putina and Vladimir Putin senior, on October 6, the eve of the 70th. Bring him to you, he causes so much Pain and anger, the whole world is praying for his death [illegible]. Death Putin, you raised a freak and a murderer.”
Based on evidence from the cemetery’s numerous surveillance cameras, police arrived at Tsybaneva’s home on Monday and took her into custody. Although the woman admitted to writing the note after the arrest, authorities conducted a series of tests to confirm that it was indeed she who had written it.
According to the report, after a DNA test showed traces of her skin on the paper the note was written on, a handwriting expert confirmed the handwriting was hers, while a linguistic examination found the note had “a negative review.” of Russian” contained President Vladimir Putin.”
When asked to explain her actions, Tsybaneva told the court, “I just watched a TV show that was very serious and there was some news that made me… I realized that everything is very scary, everything is very sad and many people were killed.”
Prosecutors called her act a “brazen crime” and called on the police to take Tsybaneva into custody. In justifying the arrest, the prosecutor said Tsybaneva had “committed a crime the danger of which to the public is to offend the memory of the dead and the feelings of the living towards the dead.”
The court has now sentenced Tsybaneva to house arrest until November 8 and banned her from using the internet, telephone or mail.
In response to the verdict, the woman’s son, Maxim Tsybanev, told Mediazona: “In the context of the measures she has taken, it’s too harsh, but, well, in the context of the current situation in this country, it really isn’t so bad.”
However, it is reportedly unclear how the woman gained access to the grave of Putin’s parents at Serafimovskoye Cemetery.
While ordinary Russians, in desperation, find unique ways to express their disgust at their president and the nation’s ongoing war in Ukraine, security at the cemetery has been tightened after a similar incident was reported late last month. Members of the Russian group Feminist Anti-War Resistance (FAR) also left a small mock-up note on an elementary school notebook that read: “Dear Parents! Your son is behaving disgracefully! whole school! Act!”
After his decision to invade Ukraine, the Russian president has faced sporadic protests in several cities across the country, which the authorities immediately put down.
Shortly after the Russians invaded Ukraine, authorities arrested more than 4,300 people while thousands of protesters chanted “no to war”. and “Shame on you!” Similar protests erupted across the country after Putin ordered Russia’s first conscription since World War II.
