Russian Supreme Court to hear an appeal on Karpyuk and Klykh case
The Ukrainians Stanislav Klykh and Mykola Karpyuk convicted in Russia to participate via videolink in the Supreme Court meeting, considering their appeals, on October 26
The Supreme Court of Russia will hear an appeal against the sentence for the Ukrainians Stanislav Klykh and Mykola Karpyuk convicted in Russia. The court hearing will be held on October 26, according to Grani referring Dokka Itslayev and Marina Dubrovina, the lawyers of the convicts.
Karpyuk Klykh will take part in the court hearing via a videolink from the detention facility of Grozny, Chechnya.
The daily “Caucasus Today” reported that the case materials of the Ukrainians were sent to the Supreme Court on September 22.
Dubrovina also told that the court hearing of the other Klykh’s case on insult of the prosecutor wasn’t held due to the technical reasons. She explained that since the moment of passing the case of her defendant to the Supreme Court, it is the Supreme Court to issue the permission to convey the convict from the detention center. The regional court of Grozny, which is hearing Klykh’s second case, simply needed more time to agree his conveyance with the Supreme Court. That’s why the convict wasn’t delivered to the hearing.
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. Stanislav Klykh was detained in Russia in September 2014, when he came to Russia to visit his pregnant girlfriend.
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.
