The Novorossiysk Garrison Military Court sentenced Vladimir Polulyakhov, who had signed a three-month contract, to five years of imprisonment for failing to appear at his military unit after treatment in a hospital.

The court found Vladimir Polulyakhov guilty of failure to appear for military service during the period of mobilization, the “Kommersant” reported.
