The Investigative Committee of the Trans-Baikal Territory opened a criminal case under the article "Public dissemination of knowingly false information about circumstances posing a threat to the life and safety of citizens." The reason for this was the post of one of the locals in the Viber messenger.

According to the press service of the regional investigation department, a resident of the Aginsky district posted in one of the groups false information about the spread of the coronavirus in the territory of the region and about the allegedly introduced access regime in one of the settlements.

The suspect faces a fine of 300 to 700 thousand rubles, or imprisonment for up to three years. Criminal liability for the distribution of fake coronavirus was introduced on April 1, 2020.
