MOSCOW, February 19 (RAPSI) – Programmer Vladislav Kuleshov has been sentenced to a 1.5-year supervised release for calls for mass riots in Moscow, RAPSI has learnt in a court in Russia’s Stavropol.

Earlier, there was another defendant in this case, ex-teacher of mathematics Dmitry Bogatov. For right now, he is cleared of all charges.

Investigators claimed that on March 29, 2017, a person hiding identity behind a pseudonym published texts calling for radically extremist actions. Law enforcement agencies involved in the case said that it was Bogatov, who published calls for mass riots using special computer programs.

However, a later computer examination failed to produce evidence that Bogatov called for terrorism and extremism. Attorney Sarkis Darbinyan told RAPSI that experts examined Bogatov’s electronic devices and did not find any illegal materials there.
