The Crimean kept gunpowder and “grass” at home. I was lucky that I got off with a suspended sentence
In the Black Sea region, a local resident was convicted of possession of ammunition and drugs. The 57-year-old Crimean was found guilty under Part 1 of Art. 222.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal storage of explosives), part 2 of Art. 228 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (illegal possession of narcotic drugs).
The court found that the man had been storing gunpowder in his home since 1996 without permits. Also in April 2023, the man planted hemp plant seeds on his property. Having grown it, the convict tore off the leaves and inflorescences, after which he produced the narcotic drug cannabis. In total, about 60 g of the drug was seized by internal affairs officers at the defendant’s place of residence.— reported the Prosecutor’s Office of the Republic of Crimea.
The court agreed with the position of the state prosecutor about the man’s guilt and sentenced him to 5 years of suspended imprisonment with a probationary period of 2 years, and also imposed a fine on the culprit. The verdict did not enter into legal force.
