According to investigators, in May of this year, Farber threw Molotov cocktails into the buildings of the military registration and enlistment office and the recruiting office, which caused fires in them. “As a result of the fires of the Russian Federation, property damage was caused in the form of damage to the premises of the recruiting station and the premises of the military commissariat, as well as the destruction of property, represented by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation,” the press service of the court reports.
In 2013, Ilya Farber was sentenced to eight years in a strict regime colony in the case of abuse of power and taking a bribe. At that time, Farber worked as a history teacher and director of the House of Culture in the village of Moshenka, Tver Region, where he moved from Moscow in 2010. Vladimir Putin called the verdict in the Farber case “blatant”.
According to the investigation, Farber demanded from the contractor, engaged in the repair of the House of Culture, a bribe of 400 thousand rubles for signing the act of acceptance of work. Farber and his defenders argued that he invested his own funds in the repair and then demanded that the contractor return the debt. Farber was released from prison on parole in January 2014.
