According to the lawyer Dmitry Laevsky, although accusations against the manager and “lie outside the right,” the sentence did not cause strong surprise. “As for Viktor Dmitrievich himself, he perceived this sentence,” said Defender.
He noted that lawyers will continue to cancel the sentencing in an oversight order, despite the impossibility of doing this by appeal. “We will raise the question of violating the rights of Viktor Babarico to the UN Human Rights Committee,” Laevsky emphasized.
