According to prosecutors, the book, which is on the Russian federalist list of extremist literature, was posted on her website from 2007 to 2011. RIA Novosti reports.

The woman pleaded guilty to charges of attempting to incite racial hatred. She asked for leniency in her case, which could have otherwise sent her to prison for up to two years. In January, a Moscow resident received a one year suspended sentence for posting "Mein Kampf" on his site.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, neo-Nazi groups sprang up over Russia, despite the massive suffering endured in the country during the war with Nazi Germany from 1941-1945, RIA Novosti reports.

Hitler wrote the autobiographical "Mein Kampf" while in prison after a failed Munich coup in 1923. The book outlines the Nazi vision of Aryan racial supremacy and was banned in Russia in 2010.
