The so-called "DNR court" sentenced ardent supporter of the Russian World, the "DNR" blogger Roman Manekin to 2.5 years in prison in a penal colony. This was said in messages in the separatist segment of social networks. Manekin was arrested in occupied Donetsk five months ago.

The court's decision itself was promised to be shown "later", - the message said. Local bloggers who support Manekin were outraged by the "injustice, manipulation of facts and the closed nature of" his "case". Roman Manekin is a native of Makiivka (Donetsk oblast). He moved to Moscow in the 90s and became a citizen of the Russian Federation. He fervently supported the Russian Spring in 2014 and even returned to occupied Donetsk, positioning himself as a "consultant" from Moscow. At the same time, he regularly wrote emotional posts on social networks in which he idealized the Russian World and criticized the "mistakes of the authorities", including leader of the "DNR" Denis Pushilin, about whose actions he even wrote a letter to head of the Russian Federation Putin. Manekin was repeatedly arrested in CADO, he was tortured during his detention in the pre-trial detention center, he himself wrote about a broken leg.
