In Russia, Navalny was sentenced to five years probation

In the case of embezzlement of funds of the company “Kirovles” the Leninsky court of Kirov decided to give the opposition politician Alexei Navalny to five years probation, according to RIA Novosti.

It is reported that Navalny and another defendant Peter Ofitserova, in addition to the suspended sentence, has awarded 500 thousand rubles fine. The court found that they organized the embezzlement of 16 million rubles.

Recall that in 2013, Alexei Navalny and former head of the Vyatka forest company Peter Ofitserov was already sentenced to five and four years probation for embezzlement of property of “Kirovles”.
