Earlier, Sergei Sternenko said that the authorities are delaying the consideration of the case of the kidnapping of the pro-Russian politician Shcherbich

A court in Odessa sentenced activist Sergei Sternenko to seven years and three months in prison on charges of kidnapping a local pro-Russian politician. The court also ruled to confiscate half of the convict’s property.

Sternenko denies involvement in the crime, and his defense is going to appeal the verdict.

Sergei Sternenko is a popular blogger in Ukraine who criticizes the current government, and many of his supporters see this verdict as evidence of the authorities’ deliberate attack on activists and even as an “anti-Maidan revenge.”

Sternenko is involved in several more criminal cases. The most resonant of these is the murder case, which Sternenko and his supporters consider self-defense.
