“The law is the same for everyone, no double standards.” Lawyer filed claim against Putin for riding without a helmet
Maksim Chikhunov, a lawyer from Russian city of Vladivostok, has filed a claim to bring the President of Russia Vladimir Putin to administrative responsibility for riding a motorcycle without a helmet during the rally in the occupied Sevastopol.
He made a corresponding statement on his Facebook page on August 12.
The claim was sent through the Internet reception to the “head of the traffic police department in the city of Sevastopol.” Chikhunov learned about the offense from the Internet. He also asked to prosecute other participants in the rally.
Chikhunov explained that he filed a statement because Putin “commits an offense, and the law is the same for everyone, no double standards.”
He further noted that so far there has been no reaction to the statement.
Earlier, on August 10, Vladimir Putin attended the jubilee bike show of the Night Wolves motorcycle club on Mount Gasfort in the illegally annexed Sevastopol. He arrived riding the Ural motorcycle, in the carriage of which the Kremlin-controlled “head” of Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov was sitting. In the passenger seat was the Kremlin-appointed temporary acting “governor” of Sevastopol, Mikhail Razvozhaev.
