Peculiarities of qualification according to Article 296 of the Criminal Code

Hooliganism as a criminal offense involves a serious and deliberate violation of public order, which expresses clear disrespect for society, accompanied by extreme cynicism and special audacity of the perpetrator. Such actions may include:

  • inflicting bodily harm due to hooligan motives (fights while intoxicated);
  • abuse of a child, an elderly person or a disabled person;
  • manifestations of indecent behavior that show contempt for public morality;
  • intentional damage or destruction of property for entertainment;
  • disruption of events, stoppage of transport or disruption of business operations.
