Khimki Forest Trial Ends

A Khimki court on Friday acquitted a member of the Antifa antifascist youth group of attacking the City Hall building last July, and handed a second member a two-year suspended sentence.

The court acquitted Alexei Gaskarov and sentenced Maxim Solopov in connection with the attack, which saw about 90 people throw bottles into windows and fire shots from air guns to protest the construction of an $8 billion highway to St. Petersburg through the centuries-old Khimki forest.
