American Ex-Marine Convicted in Russia Won’t Appeal Sentence

MOSCOW—A previous U.S. Maritime who was sentenced to sixteen years in a Russian prison for espionage in a ruling denounced by U.S. officials, has determined not to enchantment his sentence.

Pursuing the June 15 guilty verdict by a Moscow court, legal professionals for Paul Whelan, from Novi, Mich., originally stated that they would challenge the judgment. But on Thursday, Mr. Whelan’s twin brother David said that will not happen.
