“No court verdict so far, it’s just a specific feature of the trial where the jury pronounces their conclusion in the case. They found Karpyuk and Klykh guilty. We will be able to discuss the aftermath of the verdict on the next week, May 24”, Karyuk’s lawyer Ilya Novikov said in an interview with 112 Ukraine TV channel.
