Kaliningrad resident sentenced to eight years for desire to join Right Sector
The FSB found weapons, a land mine, and components for bombs in the apartment of an extremist.
The Moscow District Military Court sentenced a resident of Kaliningrad who wanted to join the far-right movement Right Sector (organization banned in Russia) to eight years in a strict regime colony. The FSB found an 81-mm fragmentation mine of a 1939 model without a detonator, four cans with a substance that can be used as components for improvised bombs, firearms and edged weapons, Kaliningrad.ru reports.
According to investigators, the convict contacted representatives of the Right Sector in 2015 via the Internet and discussed plans to join the punitive detachment, to return to Kaliningrad and arrange terrorist acts there.
Investigators initiated criminal cases against Kaliningrad resident only in March 2017. On November 29, 2018, the court found Kaliningrader guilty of Illegal Possession of Explosive Devices (part 1 of Article 222.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation), Illegal Manufacture (part 1 of Article 30, part 1 of Article 223.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation) and Attempted Entry into Right Sector (part 1 of Article 30, part 2 of Article 208 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).
“Enthrone Rostik”. Ex-Mayor of Yalta, acquitted as per request of Prosecutor General’s Office, to return to power?
The Yalta City Court detained notorious developer Yuri Dubrovitsky who has defrauded more than 100 construction co-investors. The CrimeRussia found out that, in the past, Dubrovitsky was charged with swindling and illegal construction in Sochi – but escaped punishment and launched his construction business in Crimea with the support of Sergei Aksenov, Head and Prime Minister of the Republic of Crimea, and Andrei Rostenko, Ex-Mayor of Yalta. The criminal case against Rostenko was closed in December 2018 – Viktor Grin', Deputy Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation, had personally interceded for him. By a weird coincidence, a day before the examination of the cassation appeal in the Moscow City Court, the State Council of Crimea has donated Russia Sanatorium and Resort Complex to the Prosecutor General's Office. The deluxe property 22.8 thousand square meters in size is worth 428.1 million rubles ($6.5 million); its closed territory occupies 14.5 ha of land; and it has a private access to the sea. It became known that Rostenko does not make a secret out of his ambitions to become the Yalta Mayor again. The CrimeRussia reviewed the most recent scandals involving ‘unsinkable' Rostik.
