Ilya Belostotsky, director of the Yeralash children’s newsreel, has been charged with pedophilia, the Moskva agency reports, citing the press service of the Presnensky District Court. The criminal case has become publicly known only now – Belostotsky was arrested last year under an article on sexual relations with a person under the age of sixteen (Article 134 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation). Subsequently, the court extended the term of his detention in the pre-trial detention center several times during the year.
In addition, Meduza (recognized as a foreign agent. – Note ed.) with reference to the anonymous telegram channel “112” claims that video recordings and photographs with child pornography were found at Belostotsky’s house. Now the issue of initiating a new criminal case is being considered.
