A Moscow court has sentenced a US pastor to more than three years in jail for illegally importing hunting rifle ammunition into Russia.
Phillip Miles, from South Carolina, was arrested on 3 February at the home of a friend in the Urals city of Perm.
The sentence - three years and two months - takes account of the time he has already spent in custody.
Pastor Miles said he had brought the bullets to Russia as a gift for his friend, a fellow pastor.
Pastor Miles described the sentence as "severe" and his lawyer is planning an appeal.
