As for Andrei Krainov, the former director of the Volna closed joint stock company, prosecutors request a suspended sentence due to his pleading partial guilt, and assistance to "the triumph of justice." The prosecutor asked the court to give him a suspended sentence of 5.5 years with a five-year trial period.
