Pechersk district court of Kyiv decided to arrest Yuriy Chekanov, the resident of the occupied Sevastopol who had desecrated the memorial of the Heavenly Hundred in Kyiv. The prison term will make four months.

The court found out that on October 5, Chekanov was walking in the downtown Kyiv and saw the memorial at the Alley of the Heroes of the Heavenly Hundred. ‘At that time, he had a nervous breakdown; since he was sure that the monuments only belong to graveyards. He displaced the granite memorial and threw it on the pavement – something that he now regrets’, the court’s decision said.

The authority ruled that the incident should be qualified as ill-driven hooliganism, but his sincere repentance was considered a 'mitigating circumstance'.
