Movenko asked the “Court” to “make a fair decision” before the sentence was announced.
According to the “Court’s” decision Movenko was charged with Russia’s Criminal Code article on “public calls for extremist activities” for a few commentaries in a VK group “Crimea-Ukraine”.
He will be moved to Simferopol penal settlement.
Oksana Zheleznyak, Ukrainian’s lawyer, stated that the sentence will be appealed against.
Earlier, Russia’s prosecutor requested two years for Movenko conditionally accused of extremism.
Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry protested against the “court’s” decision in Sevastopol.
“We express protest against the “decision” of the occupational authorities to sentence Igor Movenko to two years in a penal settlement. It is a political decision. We fight for the liberation,” Mariana Betsa, Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, Movenko was detained in Sevastopol on December 16, 2016. Besides, local police detained five Ukrainians in occupied Simferopol during a raid on one of the markets.
