MOSCOW, December 03, 22:05 /ITAR-TASS/. Sergei Filin, the artistic director of Bolshoi’s ballet troupe who was hurt in an acid attack on January 17 this year, does not think that a verdict passed on his attackers was severe.
On Tuesday, the court sentenced principal ballet dancer of the Bolshoi Theatre Pavel Dmitrichenko to six years in high security prison, perpetrator of the acid splashing on Filin Zarutsky to 10 years in high security prison over particularly dangerous nature of his criminal actions and driver Andrei Lipatov, who had brought Zarutsky to the crime scene, to four years in high security prison.
The court did not find any grounds for handing down an additional penalty on the defendants.
The court levied more than 3.5 million roubles (about $105.8 thousand) from the defendants as compensation for moral and material damage to Filin.
“The defendants’ lawyers have already announced their intention to appeal the verdict, including the prison terms. In this connection, our client and we, who represent him, would like to say that we do not consider the penalty to be severe. If the appeal is satisfied, Sergei Filin will insist on the legality of the verdict,” lawyer Tatiana Stukalova, who represents Filin’s interests, told Itar-Tass.
