Mass detention for reporting armed searches and arrests in Russian occupied Crimea

Armed searches began early in the morning of October 11 in a number of Crimean Tatar homes in Bakhchysarai.  This was a clear attempt at intimidation, with the six Crimean Tatars primarily people who have taken a firm civic stand and demonstrated solidarity where others faced searches and arrests | детальніше

Russia abducts and ’arrests’ two Ukrainian border guards

There seems no let-up in Russian abductions of Ukrainian citizens of late, however the seizure of two border guards on October 3 stands apart, both because this is a brazen abduction of state officials, and because of the fairly obvious motive. | детальніше

Russia abducts activist from Ukraine, charges him with involvement in Ukrainian organization

Oleksandr Shumkov has become the latest Ukrainian to be abducted to Russia and imprisoned.  There is a major question mark over how the 28-year-old civic activist came to be in Russia, but it would be difficult to dispute the surreal nature of the charges.  The Ukrainian is accused of involvement in a Ukrainian organization that only Russia calls ‘extremist’, and that is entirely legal in Ukraine | детальніше

Moscow Patriarchate refuses to help Ukrainian academic & advocate of religious dialogue jailed by Donbas militants

World-renowned Ukrainian academic and advocate for inter-faith dialogue, Ihor Kozlovskyy has been imprisoned in the so-called ‘Donetsk people’s republic’  since January 2016 because he remained in Donetsk to care for his disabled son.  This is hardly a proper reason, but then neither are the absurd charges that the militants came up with after holding the retired university lecturer incommunicado for a month | детальніше

Prisoners of war captured defending Ukraine abandoned & in danger of fake ’trials’

There is an urgent need for Ukraine to formally recognize the soldiers who were taken prisoner by Russian or Russian-backed fighters as prisoners of war, yet Ukraine’s parliament is procrastinating on this, and on other measures to coordinate efforts to bring the men back home | детальніше

Crimean Tatar abducted after ‘search’ by masked men in Russian-occupied Crimea

Renat Paralamov has not been seen since masked men carried out what they claimed to be an ‘inspection’ of his home in Nizhnegorsk, in Russian-occupied Crimea.  Even if, as seems likely, the Russian FSB is behind this latest seizure, there is every reason to consider that their treatment of the young Crimean Tatar should be viewed as an abduction | детальніше

Fears for the life of young Ukrainian abducted by Donbas militants

There is still no information about the whereabouts of 22-year-old Mykola Petukhov who was seized by armed militants of the so-called ‘Luhansk people’s republic’ in the early morning of August 31. The abduction is of immense concern since Mykola’s mother reports that a young man, identified only as Oleksiy, was seized just a week ago, and his body found a few days later | детальніше

European Court asked to intervene over suspected Russian abduction of 19-year-old Ukrainian

There is still no information about the whereabouts of 19-year-old Pavlo Hryb, ten days after he entered Belarus and vanished.  Given the strong grounds for fearing that the young man has been abducted by Russia’s FSB, and that his life could be in danger without badly needed medication, his family and lawyer have asked the  European Court of Human Rights to apply urgent measures under Article 39 | детальніше

Release of seized Donetsk journalist negotiated with people ’close to Russia’

Kremlin-backed Donbas militants are refusing to let international monitors see Donetsk journalist Stanislav Aseyev whom they have been holding prisoner since early June.  There has been no movement on securing his release and a volunteer group believes that the militants may have gone silent to try to ‘raise his price’, possibly so that he can be exchanged for a Russian | детальніше

Ukrainian political prisoner in occupied Crimea charged with assault after complaining of ill-treatment

It seems a three and a half year sentence against Volodymyr Balukh for his Ukrainian flag in Russian-occupied Crimea was not enough. He is now facing new criminal proceedings brought after he complained about anti-Ukrainian abuse and physical violence from the head of the Razdolne detention centre Captain Valery Tkachenko | детальніше

Cowardly final brutality as Russia releases jailed 76-year-old Crimean Tatar Server Karametov

Server Karametov, the frail, seriously ill, and courageous pensioner whom a court in Russian-occupied Crimea jailed for peaceful protest, was released on Saturday evening after 10 days’ imprisonment.  It had seemed that the occupation regime could sink no lower, yet it found a way. | детальніше

Donbas Militants and Russian FSB Coordinate Fake ‘Ukrainian Saboteur’ Arrests

A day after Russia’s FSB produced a video of a Ukrainian ‘confessing’ to his part in an SBU plot to commit acts of sabotage in Crimea, Donbas and Russia, Kremlin-backed militants have come up with their own videoed arrest.  The alleged saboteur is seen supposedly being seized in the middle of summer wearing a jersey, leather jacket and cap pointing the wrong way, not to mention boots without laces. | детальніше

The frail pensioner, who suffers from Parkinson’s Disease and other serious illnesses had already been fined 10 thousand roubles the previous day for what the same ‘judge’, Marina Vladimirovna Kolotsei chose to accept was an ‘unauthorized protest’ | детальніше

Donbas militants ‘sentence’ blogger to 14 years for "spreading negative information"

A so-called military court in the self-proclaimed ‘Luhansk people’s republic’ [LPR] has sentenced two Ukrainians to huge sentences for what it calls ‘state treason’. Since the alleged ‘treason’ involved spreading ‘negative information’ on the Internet, it seems likely that one of the two people is Edward Nedelyaev, a prominent Luhansk blogger, seized in November 2016 | детальніше

Unconcealed falsifications used to jail Ukrainian activist in Russia-occupied Crimea

It may be simply that ‘judge’ Maria Bedritskaya wants to go on holiday, and can’t go until she ‘convicts’ Ukrainian activist Volodymyr Balukh. It is possible, however, that the flagrant irregularities are also intended as a warning to all Ukrainians of what they can expect for a Ukrainian flag, for honouring the slain victims of Maidan or other demonstrations of ‘dissident thinking’. . | детальніше

Russia keeps shifting the plot in its ‘Ukrainian Crimea saboteur’ trial

Almost a year after Russia’s FSB produced videos on which Crimean Tatar Redvan Suleymanov and three other Ukrainians separately ‘confessed’ to taking part in a ‘Crimean sabotage’ plot organized by Ukraine’s Military Intelligence, one of the men has been convicted of something else altogether, and the ongoing trial of Suleymanov also bares scarcely any resemblance to the original ‘plot’ | детальніше
