MOSCOW, May 27 (Itar-Tass) - The Moscow City Court on Monday sentenced Darya Botvinskaya to five years of the deprivation of freedom in a colony with a general regime for attacking, out of ethnic hate, two Dagestanis, one of whom died. The court suspended the execution of the sentence until her new-born baby turns 14.
During the presentation of the case, the prosecutor asked that the defendant be sentenced to this term with the suspension of the execution of the sentence.
Investigators established that in June 2007 Botvinskaya, then underage, and six of her accomplices committed brutal crimes, motivated by ethnic hate. On the train’s run between the stations Mark and LIanozovo of the Savyolovskoye direction of the Moscow Railway they beat up two Dagestanis, inflicting on them numerous blows and knife stabs.
One of them received six stabs and bled to death. The other one who fell, trying to escape blows, still received at least 28 stabs but survived thanks to urgent medical aid, the indictment says
Botvinskaya’s accomplices had earlier been sentenced to various terms of the deprivation of freedom. Botvinskay’s case was heard separately.
