On Thursday, a judge in the Verkh-Isetsk district court in Yekaterinburg convicted Sokolovskiy of instigating strife and insulting the religious feelings of Russian citizens.

His video was posted to YouTube and has gotten almost 2 million views.
Ruslan Sokolovsky fought the law - and the law won.
The court found no aggravating circumstances in the case and took into consideration the fact that Sokolovsky had apologized to the believers for the videos.
He pleaded not guilty in the case which has been compared to that of the Pussy Riot punk art group, whose 2012 "punk prayer" in a Moscow cathedral led to two-year prison terms. He added that the 22-year-old blogger's actions had sent a message of hatred to the church and its leader, Patriarch Kirill, according to RIA-Novosti.
"While some may see Ruslan Sokolovsky's comments on religion as disparaging, this alone is not enough to throw him behind bars", the NGO's Russian Federation director Sergei Nikitin said in a statement.
"Who can ever be offended by you walking around a church with your smartphone?" he asked at the start of his video.
