Verkhovna Rada Deputy Anton Gerashchenko said that Ukrainians are engaged in telephone terrorism in Russia. He told about it on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
According to him, Ukrainian citizens leave the message about the mining in public places in response to similar actions of the Russians. Gerashchenko said that the people of Russia “purposeful fun”, “mining” facilities on the territory of a neighboring country, and then watching the reaction of society and media.
“Telephone terrorism is very developed in our country, because we are talking of confrontation with the Russian Federation”, — explained the Deputy. He added that false reports about mining of buildings in Russia sometimes leave the Russians themselves, and sometimes Ukrainians.
In March 2018 the Ukrainian prankster Eugene Freestyle has published nearly two dozen videos on fire in the Kemerovo TC “Winter cherry”. In particular, he became the author of fake about 300 died in the fire. This rumor quickly spread in the network, and was the occasion for numerous charges to the local authorities of concealing the number of dead.
At the end of 2017, Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed a law imposing tougher penalties for telephone terrorism. Under the new rules, the maximum term of imprisonment for a false call about a bomb threat extended to 10 years. Prior to that, the maximum penalty for the offence was five years imprisonment.
