The decision was passed by a "local" court in the occupied area.

The report said that on October 8, 2017, the accused, being under the influence of alcohol, together with minors, "had intentionally damaged the flagpole and torn down a flag from Kirovsky town court's building, after which they had used it at their own discretion."

The man "fully recognized the guilt and repented of what he had done," the "LPR" said.
