The Ukrainian Stanislav Klykh, who now serves time in Chechnya, Russia, was convoyed to Chelyabinsk to continue to serve his sentence. His lawyer Ilya Novikov reported that on Tuesday.
The Ukrainian citizen was detained on suspicion of murder of Russian military men during the Russian-Chechen war in the 1990s. The Ukrainian denies the charge.
In August 2016, Klykh was sentenced to 20 years in prison. According to his lawyer, his mental health deteriorated sharply due to the tortures applied to him in the pre-detention center. The lawyer is currently not aware of Klykh’s current location.
