Police Constable Nick Shaw, Kent Police’s investigating officer for the case, said: ‘Kiseliov’s decision to seriously assault a man over an issue as trivial as a game of pool show him to be an extremely dangerous and violent individual.

‘His decision to use a knife to repeatedly wound the victim only aggravates the offence and I am pleased that we have been able to secure a custodial sentence.

‘We have zero tolerance for those who choose to use a knife as a weapon and I am pleased that our investigation was able to have Kiseliov detained overseas and brought back to the UK to face justice.’
