Crimean political prisoner Oleksandr Kolchenko in the Russian Federation was released from the isolation cell. This was reported by human rights activist Tetiaana Shchur on Facebook.

"Little good news. Kolchenko was released from isolation cell and he finally received the parcel, "she wrote.

Kolchenka was kept in the penalty cell since 18 March. He was placed there for 13 days for allegedly traveling without security.

Crimean activist Oleksandr Kolchenko was detained in August 2015 in the North Caucasus District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don on a made-up charge of preparing terrorist acts in the Crimea. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
