Russian-occupied Crimea: Maidan activist on trial, Berkut riot officers - the ‘victims’

Crimea’s puppet ‘prosecutor’ Natalya Poklonskay has announced that the ‘case’ against EuroMaidan activist Alexander Kostenko over alleged actions in Kyiv before Russia annexed Crimea has been passed to the court.
