The resident of Stavropol was sentenced for killing a kitten. Complaint to the police was filed by his own grandson.
The teenager, who witnessed the crime decided to punish his grandfather for the brutality he showed in the presence of his minor brother.
Here are more details translated from SmartNews.ru:
The trial for the murder of kitten Willie lasted for five months and ended with the indictment of the 58-year-old Nikolai Pisarenko.
He was found guilty and received a year of corrective labor with 15% of the salary deducted to the state. In addition, the court satisfied the civil lawsuit of the defendant’s grandson Sergei Semenov for the sum of 8,000 rubles [ed: about $ 250].
Sergei says that everything started from the day when he presented a kitten to his younger brother:
I bought a kitten of the Scottish Fold breed as a gift to my younger brother. Willie lived in our apartments. My brother loved to play with him, the kitten was sweet and kind. But grandfather immediately disliked him. On the evening of April 26 he came home and got angry because the kitten has left a puddle. Grandfather grabbed him, struck several times on the floor and broke his neck. I even heard the crunch. And then he just threw a kitten from the balcony of the 10th floor.
According to Sergei, it happened in the presence of his brother who at that time was only one and a half years old. The child screamed in terror and cried.
The outraged elder grandson immediately called the police, and later decided to file the lawsuit against his grandfather. For Nikolai Pisarenko the criminal charges were opened under two articles: “Cruelty towards animals with the offense being committed in the presence of minors” and “Deliberate destruction of another’s property.”
The defendant did not immediately realize the seriousness of the situation and did not show up for the first hearing of the case. To the second hearing he was escorted under guard.
The spokesman of the Judicial District No. 1 of Stavropol, Marina Slyuchenko describes:
The defendant was given attorney by the state. During the process he had changed three defenders. When Pisarenko realized that he could face criminal penalties, he started denying his guilt.
Pisarenko continued to ignore all court hearings and the judge had to bring the witnesses. The verdict was based on the testimonies of the plaintiff’s mother (daughter-in-law of Nikolai Pisarenko), a neighbor and the 18-year-old grandson Sergei Semenov.
As a result, Nikolai Pisarenko was found guilty on two counts. Besides paying the fine, he will be “provided” with forced physical labor for the coming year.

Eset74: Motherf**kers can’t be corrected by labor. His hands/fingers/feet must be broken in memory of his misdeeds.Долбаебов не исправят никакие общественные работы. Ломать руки/пальцы/ноги, как память о злодеяниях
[ Note: in Russia it is the widely accepted practice to drown the newborn kittens in the bucket of water ]
Okami: I don’t understand such people … how can one torture small animals … it just does not fit in my head. IMHO people capable of such atrocities are dangerous for society.Не понимаю я таких людей … как можно так над маленькими животными издеваться … просто в голове не укладывается. ИМХО люди способные на такие зверства так же опасны и для общества.
MacOgon: For child it might be a cute kitten, but for grandfather – animal whom he did not want and did not allow to bring to his house (of course, if it was his house). This animal shits in the house (for some people it’s the worst thing) and the cats also sharpen their claws everywhere and bite the wires. So, imagine the grandfather’s state if this kitten started biting and shitting.для ребенка это милая зверюшка. но вот для деда- животное, которое он не хотел и не позволял заводить в своём доме(если дом конечно же его). это животное которое гадит в доме(для некоторых людей это хуже некуда). а ведь кошки точат когти и грызут провода. вот и представьте состояние деда если этот котенок начал грызть и поганить
Майор (replying to the above): Firstly, you have very rich imagination, secondly – the man who affords such inadequate behavior towards animal tomorrow can hit someone’s head with a brick.Во-первых, у вас слишком буйная фантазия, а во-вторых, человек позволил себе такое неадекватное поведение по отношению к животному, а завтра он позволит себе пиздануть кого-нибудь по голове кирпичом.
Sometimes I want to twist the neck of half people around me: one is drilling something all day long, another is constantly yelling so that the whole house hears him, the third is smoking at bus stop, the fourth peeing at the building entrance, the fifth is cutting me off the lane and driving not by rules … etc. and etc.вот мне иногда хочется половине окружающих шею свернуть: один целыми днями сверлит, второй орёт постоянно, что весь дом слышит, третьи курят на остановках, четвёртые ссут в подьездах, пятые подрезают и ездят по своим правилам… и тд и тп
