Remember Sandarmokh & the Historian of the Terror Imprisoned in Putin’s Russia

On the 80th anniversary of the killing by quota at Sandarmokh of 1,111 Ukrainian, Russian and other Solovki prisoners, Russian writer Ludmilla Ulitskaya has issued a strong warning to the prosecutor and judge in the fabricated trial of historian of the Terror Yury Dmitriev. They risk their children being ashamed of them, and suffering “just as do now the descendants of those butchers who executed innocent people during the 1930s.” | detail

More details have emerged of the unexpected release on October 25 of imprisoned Crimean Tatar leaders Akhtem Chiygoz and Ilmi Umerov.  The initial reports that Russia was not preventing them from returning to Crimea were too optimistic and both will, like other Crimean Tatar leaders, be exiled while Crimea remains under occupation | detail

Court quietly deletes rigged translation it used for jail sentence of Crimean Tatar Leader Ilmi Umerov

The ‘incriminating’ word used to convict Ilmi Umerov of so-called ‘public calls to violate Russia’s territorial integrity’ has been omitted from the sentence passed on the 60-year-old Crimean Tatar leader.  Correctly omitted, since he did not say it, however the omission makes the political nature of his two-year prison sentence even more glaringly obvious. | detail

Russia brazenly flouts UN Hague Court and jails Crimean Tatar leader Ilmi Umerov

In a shock move on September 27, a Russian-controlled ‘court’ in Crimea sentenced 60-year-old Ilmi Umerov, who has multiple serious illnesses, to two years’ imprisonment. Given the suspended sentence of journalist Mykola Semena on analogous charges just one week ago, the conclusion seems clear that the harsher sentence in this case is because Ilmi Umerov is Crimean Tatar | detail

Cynical motives most likely as Russia again moves imprisoned Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov

Ukrainian filmmaker Oleg Sentsov, whom Russia is illegally holding prisoner, has once again been moved only a week after arriving at the notorious Irkutsk SIZO [remand prison].  His lawyer Dmitry Dinze has no idea where he has been taken, nor why.  While the hope must arise that this is in preparation for his release, perhaps as part of an exchange, other more cynical ploys seem at least as likely | detail

Tortured and sentenced to 20 years in Russia for being Ukrainian

If Mykola Karpyuk’s involvement in two nationalist organizations made him an obvious target for Russia’s undeclared war against Ukraine, Klykh’s link to any nationalist group was fleeting and far in the past.  He was, however, Ukrainian and no more proved needed for a breathtakingly cynical ‘trial’ which disregarded not only alibis and evidence of torture, but even historical fact. | detail

Russia demands 8-year sentence for Crimean Tatar leader Akhtem Chiygoz

The de facto prosecutor in Russian-occupied Crimea has demanded an 8-year sentence for Crimean Tatar leader Akhtem Chiygoz in a ‘trial’ that breaches even Russian law and which has openly targeted only Crimean Tatars.  This has been recognized as a political trial from the outset, and Russia is clearly hoping to get Chiygoz convicted during August when many people are on holiday in the hope of attracting less publicity. | detail
