UPDATE: Russia Seeks Suspended Sentence For Ukrainian Library Director
From Radio Free Europe:
Russian prosecutors are seeking a five-year suspended sentence for the former head of Moscow’s Ukrainian Literature Library, [Natalya Sharina], who is accused of extremism and embezzlement in a case that has been denounced by rights activists.
A suspended sentence would mean that Sharina would not be imprisoned.
The respected Russian human rights group Memorial considers Sharina a political prisoner.
