Igor Stenin is charged with posting in 2012 on his page in the social network "VKontakte" the video record "Orange Sun 14/88", which was recognized as extremist in July 2013.

During the court session, Igor Stenin has filed two motions: to close the proceedings in the case because of the lack of administrative offense and to request the information from the Open Joint-Stock Company (OJSC) "VKontakte".

The activist drew the Court's attention to the fact that the video record "Orange Sun 14/88" was recognized as extremist on July 17, 2013. The nationalist has also noted that the video record was included in the federal list of extremist materials on March 7, 2014.

He insists on the fact that he posted the video record in the social network "VKontakte" in 2012.
