Defence Appeals Ruling on Theatre Director Serebrennikov's Embezzlement Case

So far, the legal teams of Serebrennikov’s co-defendants have filed appeals, Kotomina said. An appeal usually concerns the entire verdict and not just parts referring to certain co-defendants, so it will concern the director’s verdict as well. Serebrennikov’s defence still has time to submit its own appeal.

On 26 June, the court sentenced Serebrennikov and two other defendants to suspended prison sentences and is holding them liable for the material damages.
