Sternenko and freedom

The Odessa Court of Appeal has replaced the sentence of seven years in prison for radical Sergei Sternenko in the case of the abduction and torture in 2015 of Sergei Shcherbich, a deputy of the Limansky village council, with a one-year suspended sentence for possession of a live cartridge.

The charge of robbery (part 2 of Article 187) was dropped, but he was found guilty under the article on kidnapping (part 2 of Article 146). However, the Sternenko court did not impose a penalty on her due to the expiration of the statute of limitations for the crime committed.
