Capital punishment in Russia Hanging was commonly practised in the Russian Empire during the rule of the Romanov Dynasty as an alternative to impalement , which was used in the 15th and 16th centuries. Hanging was abolished in by Alexander II after serfdom , but was restored by the time of his death and his assassins were hanged. While those sentenced to death for murder were usually pardoned and sentences commuted to life imprisonment, those guilty of high treason were usually executed. Taavetti Lukkarinen became the last Finn to be executed this way.
