Russia: Prosecutor’s Office seek reduction to actor Ustinov’s sentence

Russian Federation, Moscow
September 19, 2019 at 17:32 GMT +00:00 · Published

A representative from the General Prosectuor’s Office confirmed that the body was looking to reduce actor Pavel Ustinov’s sentence after he was found guilty of assaulting a riot police officer during an unauthorised rally in Moscow on August 3.

Speaking from Moscow on Thursday, Alexsander Kurennoy said that the ruling was fair, but that the length of sentence should be reconsidered due to “the extreme severity of the imposed penalty”.

Moscow's Tverskoy District Court had ruled on September 16 that Ustinov would serve three and a half years in a penal colony.

Protests have been taking place in Moscow since July after the Central Election Commission disqualified 57 candidates from running in the September 8 city council election, claiming irregularities in the applications.
