      Four environmental activists in
      the Russian Black Sea resort town of Gelendzhik have been found guilty of fraud.

      Media reports in Russia on August 5 said that Zufar Achilov, Vladimir
      Ivanov, Valery Semergei, and Gagik Avanesian were sentenced to prison terms
      between eight and 13 years.

      The four were arrested in February 2012 while
      investigating the construction of summer houses in the region allegedly
      belonging to President Vladimir Putin and Russian Orthodox Patriarch
      Kirill.

      It's not clear when exactly the men were sentenced.

      The
      court has found the activists guilty of receiving a significant sum of money
      from a construction company for covering up some illegalities
