ULYANOVSK, August 23 (Itar-Tass) — The Ulyanovsk district court on Thursday overturned a sentence passed on Sergei Udaltsov but found him guilty of beating a journalist. The Left Front leader, who was initially sentenced to 240 hours of community work, will pay a fine worth 35,000 rubles, an Itar-Tass correspondent reported from the courtroom.
On June 27, Udaltsov was found guilty under article 116 part 1 of the Russian Penal Code (battery or other violent actions that cause physical pain). The incident occurred at a sanctioned anti-NATO rally in Ulyanovsk on April 21 where Udaltsov reportedly beat a female journalist. Udaltsov didn’t plead guilty and appealed against the court sentence.
