For renaming a WiFi network a Russian student was detained for 10 days

For renaming a WiFi network a Russian student was detained for 10 days; of course, the Russian government did not like the name at all.

In this regard, a Moscow court sentenced a Russian university student to 10 days in jail for renaming his WIFI router with a pro-Ukrainian slogan.

According to the Russian state news agency RIA Novosti Russian student was detained for 10 days, in a clear violation of civil rights.

The Moscow State University student, identified by RIA as Oleg Tarasov, had renamed his WIFI network “Slava Ukraine,” which translates as “Glory to Ukraine” in English.

The Russian student was detained for 10 days following a nationalist salute that has become a rallying cry during Russia’s war in Ukraine, according to Russia’s independent Telegram news channel, Ostorozhno Novosti.

According to RIA, “an unlimited number of people could access the network.”

The student was found guilty of propaganda and “public display of Nazi symbols” by Moscow’s Nikulinsky District Court on Thursday and authorities confiscated his router, RIA reported.

Apparently, the authorities began tracking the administrator of the Wifi signal with the name challenging the Russian government.

Moscow court convicted young Oleg Tarasov of “public demonstration of Nazi symbolism.”

On March 6, Russian police discovered the “incriminated” wifi network inside a dormitory of the university student house on Lomonosovsky Prospekt.

After identifying the owner of the router, the officers searched his room, Russian student was detained for 10 days.

Even if not openly, many Russians are against the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which so far is still without a winner, and with thousands of casualties on both sides.


Glory to Ukraine, Glory to the heroes (in Ukrainian: Слава Україні! Героям слава!, romanized: Slava Ukrayini! Heróyam slava!) is a Ukrainian national motto.

It is usually stated in the form of a greeting and reply, so that one person greets with “Glory to Ukraine!” and the other replies with “Glory to the heroes!”.

Pro-Ukrainian saying

The slogan resurfaced in Ukraine during the country’s struggle for independence in connection with the fall of the Soviet Union, and again during the Euromaidan revolution, as well as during the Russo-Ukrainian war since 2014.

The phrase gained international notoriety during the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022 and has been used in demonstrations in support of Ukraine around the world.

For the Russian government, it is a Nazi symbol, but nothing could be further from the truth, as it is actually an attack against those who dissent from the Russian government’s decisions.

In 2023, the Ukrainian army reported that a soldier was gunned down by “Russian invaders” in a video posted on social media, and hailed him as a hero whose death would be avenged.

In a message posted on Facebook, the 30th Mechanized Brigade identified the soldier as Tymofiy Shadura.

The soldier had been missing for weeks, following hostilities around the eastern town of Bajmut, scene of some of the heaviest fighting of the war in Ukraine.

The man said “Slava Ukraini!” – or “Glory to Ukraine!”-before multiple gunshots could be heard coming from an unseen shooter or shooters.
