Due to errors in the verdict, the court sent for re-examination the case of a Krasnodar hacker for distributing malware and donating to FBK

On October 5, the Krasnodar Regional Court sent for review the case of 29-year-old hacker Andrei Kovalenko on donations to FBK and distribution of malicious software. This was reported in the court ruling, which was noticed by Mediazona.

The appellate court overturned the verdict on the prosecutor's complaint due to errors in the ruling of the trial court. Thus, the Temryuk District Court sentenced Kovalenko to “5 imprisonment, without specifying months or years, that is, in fact, did not impose punishment for these crimes,” the appeal ruling says. In addition, the trial court did not indicate the type of correctional institution.
