The first webcast hearing in Russian courts of law is planned for 14 May 2015.

It will be available on the official website of a regional court that has been chosen as a test ground for the webcast equipment.

It is planned that the courts will broadcast major hearings of public interest, including corruption-related cases.

The first webcast will be of a verdict to a 22-year-old accused of killing three people.

This is going to be a big test day for the Russian legal system that aims to be more transparent and attractive for Russian litigants.
