The Moscow City Court did not replace the suspended sentence with a real one for the 17-year-old defendant in the “palace case” Gleb Borisov. About it informs Sota referring to the teenager’s father.
November 7, the prosecutor’s office protested the decision of the court of first instance and demanded that Borisov be sentenced to seven years of real term. Earlier, the court gave him a five-year suspended sentence.
The first verdict on Borisov was passed on September 1 by the Tverskoy District Court. He was found guilty under two articles of the criminal code: the use of non-dangerous violence against government officials and damage to someone else’s property out of hooliganism. The charge also tried to attract Borisov under the article on group hooliganism, but this charge was dropped.
As reported by OVD-Info, citing the words of the convict’s father, Borisov, on 23 January, kicked the officers of the National Guard at the rally in support of the founder of the FBK Alexei Navalny. During the trial, he apologized to them, the apology was accepted. The National Guards said that they did not feel pain. In addition, Borisov took part, together with another person involved in the “palace case” Konstantin Lakeev, in throwing snowballs at a car assigned to the FSB. The latter is now in jail-2 (“Butyrka”).
In addition, the court of first instance ruled that Borisov should pay 427 thousand rubles to the military unit of the FSB in damaging the car. This amount may decrease, as new persons involved have appeared in the case. The investigation believes that at least 13 people participated in throwing snowballs at the car.
