A scientist from St. Petersburg was sentenced to four years in prison because of sleeping pills |  Incidents


A scientist from St. Petersburg was sentenced to four years in a maximum security colony because of sleeping pills, the delivery of which he ordered from India.

According to the joint press service of the courts of St. Petersburg, in 2023, a man purchased two narcotic drugs on the official website of an Indian pharmacy. Payment of $63 was made through the Blockchain payment system, after which the goods were sent to the buyer.

After the goods arrived in Russia, a resident of St. Petersburg was detained by law enforcement officers. The man explained that he previously lived in Germany, where a doctor prescribed him these drugs for medical reasons. Having moved to Russia, the scientist tried to find similar medications in local pharmacies, but to no avail. As a result, the man decided to buy them abroad.

The Russian admitted that he had problems sleeping, so he purchased medications specifically to eliminate them. The court commuted the man’s sentence, finding that he did not harm anyone and was not aware of the consequences of the crime.

Earlier, the Central District Court of Chita found the former head of the AIDS Center in Transbaikalia guilty of writing off and destroying the drug “Evushheld” without actually using it.
