  1. If there is enough evidence that this is self-defense and not intentional murder in any way, then they will not put you in jail. But there should be enough arguments.

  2. In theory, it would be logical to recognize the defending person as innocent, but in Russia they are very often jailed for “exceeding the necessary self-defense”. If I remember correctly, there was a case when a girl was jailed for shooting with a trauma device in self-defense, although no one died there.

  3. Our country has an “accusatory bias”, let's say . For this reason, very often such cases are decided not in favor of the accused. In fact, both guilty and not guilty usually refer to article 108 “Murder committed while exceeding the limits of necessary defense”. The line is so thin between this article and Article 111 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation ” intentional infliction of serious harm to health , resulting in the death of a person by negligence .”

    Many factors are always taken into account ,not only the case materials , but also the defendant's attitude to the situation. Witnesses are interviewed ,if any. Although..witness statements do not always play an important role in such a case.

    Most often, everything depends on the professionalism of the judge .
