A court in the Russian city of Penza has sentenced seven activists from a group known as “Set” (Network) to prison terms of between six and 18 years on terrorism charges that opposition figures have denounced as fabricated and “horrific.” Members of the group say the verdict was based on testimonies they gave after being tortured. Critics have compared the trial to Stalinist show trials. (Russian Service)
