Black resident of St. Petersburg nails a man who called her 'monkey'

Blogger and model Stella Kaziyake, a Rwanda-born black resident of St. Petersburg, Russia, filed a complaint against a man who insulted her during a bus ride and did not let her leave. She posted a video of the incident from the bus on social media. According to Stella, the male passenger sat down next to her while saying "Hey, monkey, let's take a picture, I'll send it to my wife."

The incident took place on June 12. The woman noted that the bus driver did not pay attention to this situation. She started filming the incident on her phone and uploaded the video on the Internet. The video generated over 9,000 comments. Many users acknowledged that it was the man who was the 'monkey' in this situation.

Kaziyake later said that the prosecutor's office contacted to inform her that the offender had been detained.

The man was identified as Nikita Ustyuzhanin. He closed all accounts and does not respond to messages from journalists.

Kaziyake herself claims that Ustyuzhanin had been tried for assaulting a police officer and attempted rape. 

On June 16, it was reported that Nikita Ustyuzhanin was arrested for seven days. He was also ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service for "Inciting hatred or enmity, as well as the humiliation of human dignity" (part 1 of Art. 20.1 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation "Petty hooliganism").

The man pleaded guilty and said that he was sorry about his act that he had committed, as he said, under the influence of alcoholic intoxication.
