VLADIMIR, Russia, Aug. 21 (UPI) -- A Moscow man faces accusations of hate speech towards skinheads, in presenting a video at a café in Vladimir, Russia, an investigative committee said.

The unnamed man, 27, is accused of "anti-skinhead propaganda" that allegedly claimed members of a specific social group -- skinheads -- were "inferior citizens" and urged violence against them, the statement from the committee said.

The incident occurred in June in Vladimir, a city 120 miles east of Moscow, the Russian news agency RIA-Novosti reported Tuesday.
