Criminal trial

Valery Moskalenko was convicted of quoting the Bible. What decision will the Court of Appeal make on October 10?

Khabarovsk Territory

On October 10, 2019, the Khabarovsk Regional Court will hold a hearing on the appeal of Valery Moskalenko. Earlier, on September 2, he was sentenced to 2 years and 2 months of forced labor and another six months of restriction of freedom. The defense considers the conviction for believing in God unlawful, and it was appealed.

Valery Moskalenko is a peaceful worker and a caring son who takes care of his sick mother. For more than a year he was detained in a pre-trial detention center and then was convicted for meeting with friends in the conference hall of the Yerofey hotel complex and quoting the words of Jesus Christ from the Sermon on the Mount.

It is expected that the end of this case will be put in the regional court.
