MOSCOW, March 5 (RAPSI) – Moscow’s Meshchansky District Court on Thursday sentenced a resident of town of Voronezh Mikhail Kvasov to a 270,000-ruble fine ($4,000) for murder threats to Moscow judge Stanislav Minin, RAPSI was told in the court’s press office.

Prosecutors earlier asked court to fine Kvasov 300,000 rubles ($4,500).

The defendant pleaded not guilty. The man said he had published the incriminating statement in support of rallies and did not imply to threaten the judge.

According to case papers, on September 5, 2019, an Instragram user with the nickname Chimera of All Russia published the judge’s photo and wrote that Minin had sentenced illegal rally activist Konstantin Kotov to 4 years in prison.

Investigators claimed that between September 7 and 12, 2019, Kvasov having a criminal intent and knowing about public danger of his actions posted a comment to the publication calling to take part in rallies and promising to kill the judge.
