Maykop student tells story of apology for meme repost

An apology for the repost of the meme made amid the pandemic about the panic was preceded by a "prophylactic conversation" with employees of the "E Centre", Artyom Logunov, a Maykop student, has informed.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on April 9, Artyom Logunov posted a video in the chat on the Telegram channel "Atypical Adygea" with an apology for his reposting of a joke made amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"I posted a message taken from the Internet, the reliability of which I was not sure; by doing so I could provoke a panic among people and their relatives, which I sincerely repent of. I hope you'll not repeat my mistakes," said Artyom Logunov in his video.

The publication of the video with an apology was preceded by a "prophylactic conversation" with the police, Artyom Logunov told the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent on April 12. "(I had a conversation) with employees of the Centre for Combating Extremism (CCE, or "E Centre")," he said.

However, the young man refused to explain whether he was forced to apologize, or whether he had an opportunity to simply delete the original post without publishing the apologized video.
