Blogger Almost Gets in Jail

A Russian blogger has been sentenced to one year conditional for inciting social discord and hatred on the Internet. It is the first precedent when a blogger gets a sentence.

In February 2007, Savva Terentyev left a comment on a local journalist's blog. Under the nickname of "terentyev" he urged, among other things to "burn policemen in the central square of the city."
