The Sverdlovsk regional court sentenced a neo-Nazi to nine years in prison after finding him guilty of murder motivated by ethnic hatred, according to a December 19, 2008 report by the web site Newsru.com. Vladimir Makarov, age 17, reportedly stabbed to death a native of Uzbekistan who worked in Yekaterinburg, Russia as a cab driver on November 8, 2007. Three other youths who assaulted the cab driver, but reportedly did not stab him, face assault charges, but for some reason not hate crimes charges, despite the fact that they allegedly screamed racist slogans during the attack. Their trial is pending.
