The court of Omsk put the deputy of the Omsk City Council Dmitry Petrenko on the wanted list. Kommersant was informed about this in the press service of the Kuibyshev District Court, noting that the court also ruled on the arrest of the deputy in absentia. “After the arrest, keep Petrenko in the pre-trial detention center in Omsk. Suspend the proceedings on the case until it is searched, ”the decision says. The case file on the court’s website states that Dmitry Petrenko did not appear at the preliminary hearing either on August 8 or 9. According to Kommersant’s sources, it was said at the hearing that the deputy had left the country. It was not possible to contact the lawyers of the defendant.

In March, the investigating authorities opened a criminal case against Dmitry Petrenko, an independent member of the Omsk City Council. He was charged with Part 2 of Art. 207.3 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (public dissemination of knowingly false information about the use of the Armed Forces by a person using his official position). According to the investigators, a deputy of the Omsk City Council of the sixth convocation, using the author’s Telegram channel, disseminated under the guise of reliable false information about the use of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to destroy civilian infrastructure and the civilian population of Ukraine during a special military operation. During the investigation, Dmitry Petrenko was given a preventive measure in the form of a ban on certain actions.

In July, the investigation of the criminal case was completed, and it was submitted to the Kuibyshevsky District Court of Omsk. The case was assigned to consider the judge Sergei Kalmykov.

Dmitry Petrenko was born in 1987.

In 2017, he was elected to the City Council from the Communist Party. In September 2021, the Sovetsky District Court of Omsk found deputy Petrenko guilty of disobeying the lawful order of the police (Article 19.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation), which demanded to stop video filming at the polling station. As a result, the deputy was sentenced to 10 days of administrative arrest. Later, the Kirov District Committee of the Communist Party of Omsk expelled him from the party for violating the charter. In April of this year, Dmitry Petrenko was arrested for seven days under Part 1 of Art. 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (demonstration of Nazi or extremist symbols).
