As 112 International reported, Mykola Karpyuk, leader of the Ukrainian National Assembly, was detained in March 2014. Stanislav Klykh was detained in Russia in September 2014, when he came to Russia to visit his pregnant girlfriend.

The Russian jury said they both allegedly joined the Viking unit, which fought on the side of Chechen nationalists as they sought independence from Russia in the 1990s. The jury accused Karpyuk and Klykh of killing and wounding dozens of Russian servicemen. Mykola Karpyuk, leader of the Ukrainian National Assembly, was detained in March 2014.

After their conviction, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin also commented on the verdict. “Russia released Savchenko but sentenced Karpyuk and Klykh immediately after that. So much of the Russian policy towards our political prisoners”, he tweeted.
