Moscow’s Timiryazev district court on March 6 sentenced Dmitry Ivanov, the administrator of the Protesting MGU (Moscow State University) Telegram channel, to 8 1/2 years in prison on a charge of discrediting Russia’s armed forces. Ivanov served 25 days in jail in another case but was not released in June. Instead, he was charged again over his social-media posts about Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine.
