The Supreme Court of Russia refused to consider the writ of appeal on legality of a sentence to civic activist Ildar Dadin, reports media service of the court.

The Supreme Court of Russia refused to consider the writ of appeal on legality of a sentence to the civic activist Ildar Dadin, reports media service of the court.

“Today the court issued a decree on refusal in transfer of the writ of appeal for consideration in judicial session”, reported the agency.

Thus, Interfax notes, the judge did not find bases for a check of matter in judicial session by the Supreme Court.

Civic activist Dadin became the first and still unique convict in Russia for numerous participation in street protests (Art. 212.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

In 2015, the Basmanny Court of Moscow found him guilty and sentenced to three years of standard regime penal colony. Later, the Moscow City Court reduced the punishment by half a year — up to two and a half years.

Dadin's lawyers consider the pronounced sentence not corresponding to the Russian legislation, and the article 212.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation - contradicting the Constitution of Russia.⁠
