Sokolovsky has been given a three-and-a-half-year suspended sentence, which means he won't be imprisoned unless he is found guilty of a new crime. It had more than a million views, according to The Guardian.
The Guardian reports on Thursday, Sokolovsky received a three and a half yearsuspended sentence for "inciting religious hatred".
Judge Yekaterina Shoponyak found Sokolovsky guilty of the same offence for which members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot were jailed in 2012.
The court agreed with the prosecution that a number of videos on Sokolovsky's channel hurt the feelings of religious people and incited hatred against them by comparing Jesus Christ to a zombie, saying that God does not exist and arguing that Russian Federation is an obscurantist country.
Amnesty International called him a prisoner of conscienceand had urged Russian Federation to release him.

During the trial, Shoponyak reportedly apologized to anyone who may have been offended by his video, which was filmed in the Yekaterinburg's Church of All Saints, but that didn't seem to get him any leniency.
