The Timiryazevsky Court of moscow has issued subpoenas to russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov, russia's representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya and speaker of the aggressor country’s defense ministry Igor Konashenkov in the case of "discrediting the Russian army". This is said in the message of the Prison MGU TV channel.
These persons are being called as witnesses at the trial, which considers the case of author of the Protest (Prison) MGU Telegram channel Dmitry Ivanov. Ivanov was arrested for publishing about the crimes of the russian armed forces in Ukraine.
The petition for their summons was filed by Ivanov’s lawyer Maria Eismont. She explained that from a legal point of view, officials should be considered witnesses in the case, because their point of view is considered the only correct one.
"Ensuring their appearance is entrusted to the side of the defense. These persons are not being summoned directly by the court", - the press service of the court stated.
