Oleksandr Tsariuchenko, 43, was on Friday sentenced by the region court in Kaunas, Lithuania's second-largest city, and will have to spend the first five years in prison and the rest of the term in a correction house, Judge Arunas Pastuolis announced.

He also awarded 11,400 euros in pecuniary damage from Tsariuchenko for damage done during a fire.

The prosecutor had asked the court to sentence Tsariuchenko for life.

Tsariuchenko killed two fellow nationals, including one in a helpless state, in a violent incident in August, 2018, and also attempted to kill a third persons in a way posing danger to the lives of other people.

The Ukrainian initially knifed to death one of his fellow nationals during a conflict in a yard of apartment buildings in Kaunas. The body was found in a children sand box.

Tsariuchenko then went to an apartment where Ukrainians lived and stabbed to death a sleeping former co-worker who was in a helpless state.
