Russian woman fined for calling Zelensky ‘handsome’
A Russian woman has been fined about 13,000 baht for saying Ukrainian president Zelensky was handsome.
Police charged her with ‘discrediting the Russian military’ for calling him a ‘handsome young man’.
Russia is currently in a war with Ukraine.
The court hearing, in the Russian capital of Moscow, only lasted five minutes.
The woman, known as Mrs Slegina, made the comment while talking to a Ukrainian woman in a restaurant.
Three days later she was arrested by police, who said three people had reported her comments.
It’s believed Mrs Slegina intends to appeal her fine.
