Dmitry Apraksin, chairman of the Coordinating Council of Russian Compatriots of Cyprus, told the agency that the woman’s act was qualified as a criminally punishable act, and the fact that the crime was committed on national grounds and the infliction of “moral harm” was recognized as an aggravating circumstance.

The incident took place on August 22, when a group of Russians were celebrating Russian Flag Day.
