The IC in Moscow began checking after Artemy Lebedev’s post about the relics of saints and Lenin

“Media information about a possible violation of the right to freedom of conscience and religion in Telegram is being checked. According to the available data, a statement about the holy relics was published in obscene terms on Lebedev’s page,” the agency interlocutor said.

The source clarified that the check qualifies under Part 1 of Article 148 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (“Violation of the right to freedom of conscience and religion”).

Earlier, Lebedev spoke in his Telegram channel about the relics of saints, Lenin’s Mausoleum and expressed bewilderment, “why corpses are lying on display in mausoleums,” and so many people want to visit such places and venerate the relics.
