Judge of section 370 of the Tverskoy District Court of Moscow.
Kazakova Ekaterina Nikolaevna was born on March 22, 1986. By a resolution of the Moscow City Duma dated July 16, 2014, she was appointed to the position of a magistrate of the district number 370 of the Tverskoy district in the city of Moscow for a three-year term of office. On June 28, 2017, her powers were extended by a resolution of the Moscow City Duma for another five years.
Carrying out political repression using her official position.
Judge Kazakova first hit the news chronicle in 2017 when she sentenced businessman and former senator from the Chechen Republic Umar Dzhabrailov to a symbolic fine of 4,000 rubles under Part 1 of Article 6.9 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (consumption of narcotic drugs or psychotropic substances without a doctor's prescription or new potentially dangerous psychoactive substances). Recall that on August 30, 2017, Dzhabrailov was detained by police at the Four Seasons Hotel in Moscow on charges of hooliganism, after he opened fire from a premium pistol in his room. Later, Kazakova's colleague Judge Ermakova found him guilty of hooliganism with the use of a weapon and imposed a fine of 500,000 rubles on him.
But an ex-senator from Chechnya is one thing, oppositionists are another. On October 27, 2021, Ekaterina Kazakova sentenced a student of the Siberian Federal University, secretary of the Krasnoyarsk branch of the unregistered Libertarian Party of Russia, Gleb Maryasov, to 10 months in prison in the case of blocking roads (part 1 of article 267 of the Criminal Code) at a peaceful rally on January 23. Maryasov was accused of verbally calling for “group and cohesive movement of citizens to the carriageway of the streets of the central part of the city of Moscow to block their movement and block transport” at a rally in support of politician Alexei Navalny. The Memorial Human Rights Center considers Gleb Maryasov a political prisoner, and the case is politically motivated.
Two days later, on October 29 of the same 2021, Judge Ekaterina Kazakova sentenced blogger Ruslan Bobiev (Ruslani Murodzhonzod) and his girlfriend Anastasia Chistova to 10 months in prison in a controversial case of insulting the feelings of believers (Part 1 of Article 148 of the Criminal Code). The reason was a photo on Bobiev's Instagram, taken against the backdrop of the capital's St. Basil's Cathedral. In the photo, a girl in a police jacket squatted in front of Bobiev while he held her hair, simulating oral intercourse.
