A Moscow City Court sentenced skinhead student Denis Voloshin to seven and a half years in prison on Wednesday for committing murder on grounds of national hatred, RAPSI news agency reported.
Voloshin and two unidentified individuals attacked two people of non-Slavic appearance and stabbed them at least five times in a Moscow park a year ago.
One victim died and the other managed to escape.
At the time of the crime, Voloshin was a minor and cannot be sentenced to more than 10 years under Russian law.
He will serve his sentence at a standard regime penal colony and will also have to serve a year of restricted liberty after release.
