NOVOSIBIRSK, March 31. /TASS/. A district court in Novosibirsk, Siberia's largest city, fined a local farmer $188 on Tuesday for emptying a dung cart in front of a Sberbank branch office in February as a protest against the bank's credit policy.
Alexander Baksheyev stuck gallows-shaped posters reading "Bankers are people's enemies" and "Down with credit slavery" into the dunghill, the court has told. He was found guilty of violating the rules of organizing rallies and demonstrations.
The farmer's assistant, who drove the dung to the bank's office in his tractor, was fined $94.
