Russia jails US pastor

A Moscow court has sentenced a US pastor to more than three years in jail for illegally importing hunting rifle ammunition into Russia.

Phillip Miles, from South Carolina, was arrested on 3 February at the home of a friend in the Urals city of Perm. The sentence – three years and two months – takes account of the time he has already spent in custody.

Pastor Miles said he had brought the bullets to Russia as a gift for his friend, a fellow pastor. Pastor Miles described the sentence as “severe” and his lawyer is planning an appeal.

What, he was looking if there are any communists left in Russia!!!
