ST.PETERSBURG, August 28. /TASS/. Former deputy of Russia’s lower house of parliament Mikhail Gluschenko has been sentenced to 17 years in jail in the 1998 murder case of Russian politician Galina Starovoitova, a TASS correspondent reports from the courtroom.
Gluschenko earlier said he had agreed to commit the crime fearing for his life and the life of his relatives, adding that he had no personal motives for the murder. In his last plea on Thursday, he said: "I ask the pardon of all the Russian people."
