MOSCOW, September 10. (Itar-Tass) – At the Moscow City Court session on Tuesday, the public prosecutor asked for a 15 year sentence in maximum security penal colony for Kazakhstani citizen Ilya Pyanzin, who has admitted to being guilty of preparing an assassination attempt at Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, reported Itar-Tass correspondent.
The court has examined the case behind closed doors. Special procedure is applied to court hearings as Pyanzin has made a deal with the investigation; no details of the deal are available.
