MOSCOW, September 29. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian journalist Bozhena Rynska, accused of beating a correspondent of NTV television, was on Monday sentenced to one year of correctional labor with 10% deducted from her salary.
Under the Criminal Code, correctional labor is a punishment imposed by the court, under which the person under sentence continues living a normal life and working, but the state deducts part of his or her salary.
The journalist must also compensate for the damage to the amount of about 680,000 rubles (about $18,000) - the cost of the damaged video camera and harm to the health of the journalist.
Rynska herself did not show up to hear the verdict, and her representative in court told reporters she intended to appeal against the judgment.
According to the investigators, the TV correspondent tried to interview her on September 11, 2013, but she refused and then hit him several times, damaging his Sony camera with a Canon lens system.
