Saint Petersburg (AFP) – Relatives and supporters react after a Russian court sentences Yegor Balazeikin, a Russian 17-year-old charged with throwing Molotov cocktails at army recruitment offices, to six years in a juvenile penal colony. Dozens of military enlistment centres across Russia have been targeted in attempted arson attacks by anti-conflict protestors since Russia launched its full-scale military campaign against Ukraine last February.
