Is sci-hub legal in your country? If yes, then it is legal for you get papers from sci-hub. If not, then it is not legal for you to get papers from sci-hub. You always break the laws of the country where you are located, and those who believe are harmed by your action have the recourse to sue you in your country because that is where you have broken the law.
