The Supreme Court of the Republic of Kabardino-Balkaria considered the appeal against the sentence to the Circassian activist Ramazan Molov, who was sentenced to two years in prison for injuring a police officer during a protest near the vilage of Kendelen, and replaced the real term with a suspended sentence. The defense decided to seek the complete acquittal of Molov,- Caucasus Knot agency reports.

On March 2, 2021, the Collegium of the Supreme Court of Kabardino-Balkaria considered Bella Dautokova's appeal against the sentence to Ramazan Molov. The court changed the verdict of the Baksan district court, deciding to consider the sentence imposed on Molov as a suspended sentence with a probationary period of 2 years, Bella Dautokova said.

According to her, the defense petitioned for the cancellation of the sentence and full acquittal of Molov, since there is no evidence of his guilt in the case. Ramazan Molov himself also declared his innocence and asked to acquit him, and the prosecutor objected that he saw no reason to overturn the sentence.
