Moscow's Tverskoy District Court has ruled that the slogan "Fascism will not pass" discredits the Russian army, the Russian OVD-Info NGO reported via Telegram messenger on March 24.

The court ruling was issued to activist Anna Krechetova, who had previously staged a single-person picket, holding a poster with the inscription "Fascism will not pass" in her hands.

The court ruled that the relevant inscription "is a clear expression of a negative attitude toward the Russian armed forces."

The court ruled to fine the woman RUB 50,000 (about $500).

“Fascism will not pass,” a translation of the anti-fascist slogan “No pasaran!”, which was popularized by anti-fascist forces fighting in the Spanish Civil War against dictator Francisco Franco, has been used worldwide to protest and oppose fascist elements in various countries around the world.
