Court dismisses appeal filed by Valentina Cherevatenko's defence

The defence intends to challenge the court decision to dismiss the appeal filed against the decision to institute criminal proceedings on fraudulent evasion of the execution of the law on foreign agents. This was stated by Ildar Shafiev, an advocate of Valentina Cherevatenko, Chair of the "Union 'Women of Don'".

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on June 24, during the search, investigators seized documents from the office of the "Union 'Women of Don'". On June 27, the advocate of Valentina Cherevatenko received a resolution on institution of criminal proceedings against the human rights defender.

Ildar Shafiev has added that on July 11, the Rostov Regional Court dismissed the appeal filed against the decision of the Leninsky District Court of Rostov to dismiss the claim of the "Women of Don" Foundation against its inclusion in the register of foreign agents.

In its turn, the international human rights organization "Amnesty International" (AI) has announced the "action of urgent help" to Valentina Cherevatenko. To join the action, people can send a signed appeal to Yuri Chaika, General Prosecutor of Russia, with a request to close the criminal case instituted against Valentina Cherevatenko.
