The Moscow City Court on Monday reversed the decision to jail actor and activist Pavel Ustinov for three and a half years, ruling instead to give him a one-year suspended sentence.
«We don't agree with the court’s decision. In any case we will appeal. I didn't commit a crime,» Ustinov commented outside the court.
His lawyers are planning to seek the complete cancellation of the conviction.
The... Еще actor was released on bail on September 20, only days after he was jailed for three and half years for allegedly “assaulting a police officer” at an unauthorised rally in August.
