MOSCOW, July 18 (Itar-Tass) - The Russian Supreme Court on Thursday softened punishment for retired Colonel Vladimir Kvachkov convicted for an attempt to organize an armed rebellion. The court partly satisfied the defense’s appeal.

The court also changed a sentence for Kvachkov’s accomplice Alexander Kiselyov. His prison term was reduced from eleven to five and a half years.
