“The Doxa organization is involved in the training of subversive activities on the territory of Russia,” the commission said. The outlet’s publication of “instructions on how to set fire to military registration offices, police departments and military equipment, calls for Russian servicemen to surrender to the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” it said.
With the designation of “undesirable,” the penalty for financing or cooperating with Doxa is “up to five years of imprisonment,” Piskarev said.
Doxa is a student-led magazine founded in 2017 at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow. It has covered and openly criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine and reported on state prosecution experienced by students. In December 2019, the university stripped Doxa of its student organization status.
Four former editors were sentenced to two years of correctional labor in 2022 for inciting minors to commit crimes.
