MOSCOW -- A Moscow court on September 10 acquitted four people and found one guilty of hooliganism and vandalism for taking part in a pro-Ukraine stunt.
The five, including two women, went on trial on August 17.
They were accused of taking part in a stunt in which a Soviet red star atop a Stalin-era skyscraper was painted in the yellow-and-blue colors of the Ukrainian flag.
Four defendants were accused of drawing attention to the painted star and a Ukrainian flag hoisted from it by parachuting from the 176-meter building.
The fifth defendant, Vladimir Podrezov, was sentenced to 27 months in jail.
The court found Podrezov guilty of helping Ukrainian stunt daredevil Pavlo Ushyvets -- known by the nickname Mustang Wanted -- to paint the star and raise the flag.
Ushyvets, who is in Ukraine, has announced on Facebook that he carried out the stunt alone.
