In mid-January, Peradze posted a three-second video on Facebook, showing the icon covered in paint. Far-right mobs started calling for her punishment and sending her death threats, even besieging her apartment and attempting to storm the building.
Peradze told POLITICO at the time that showcasing Stalin in church is “a weapon of influence.”
On Friday, Peradze said she plans to appeal the court’s decision, InterPressNews reported.
“They can’t scare me, the fight continues and I will expose illegality from inside the prison,” Peradze said.
On Jan. 18, days after it was defaced, the Georgian Church said it had removed the painting to be “amended.”
