Russian National Guard Director Viktor Zolotov has stated publicly that Pavel Ustinov, who was recently sentenced to 3.5 years for supposedly injuring a National Guardsman during his arrest, should be released from custody and sentenced to a year’s probation. 

Zolotov says he’d like to add Ustinov’s 3.5 years to a five-year prison sentence imposed on Vladislav Sinitsa, who was convicted in early September of extremism with the threat of deadly violence for what officials say was a call for reprisal attacks against the children of law-enforcement officers.
