A 16-year-old boy was sentenced on April 7 to eight years in prison for attempting to murder his teacher.
Danat Skakun reportedly attacked the 57-year-old woman inside a school classroom in Minsk on the morning of May 23, 2016.
The student of Gymnasium No. 74 stabbed the Russian language and literature teacher with a knife at least 17 times. The woman survived the attack.
A representative of the Minsk City Prosecutor`s Office later said that the boy had tried to take revenge on the teacher for her "biased" attitude to him.
The trial was held behind closed doors because the accused was under 18 years of age.
