Rīga resident accused of war glorification

State Police (VP) has sent criminal proceedings for justification and glorification of Russian war crimes to the prosecution against a resident of Rīga who has placed symbols of the Russian Federation several times in the windows of her residence, police said Thursday.

The criminal proceedings combine four episodes of criminal offenses from March and June this year, the VP said. The resident had posted symbols and images of the Russian Federation and other war-praising symbols and images in the windows of her residence in the Torņakalns district of Rīga.

The VP opened criminal proceedings in connection with the incident, but the alleged perpetrator continued her actions despite the investigation launched by police, which was informed.

On December 12, the VP sent criminal proceedings to Riga Pardaugava Prosecutor's Office for the initiation of criminal proceedings against the abovementioned person.
