The prosecutor's office filed a protest to Vladivostok on the decision of the Leninsky district court of Vladivostok, which is 24 December 2007 was sentenced Vladimir Nikolayev to 4.5 years' imprisonment and stripped him of his right to occupy leading positions in three years. Nikolaev fully admitted his guilt. After the verdict, he was released from custody on his own recognizance.
