Russia has put Crimean activist Oleh Prykhodko to the list of people involved in extremist activities or terrorism as Krym.Realii reported.

Olha Skrypnyk, the head of Crimean human rights group told that only those citizens whose sentence has come into force might be put on this list. But there are also other grounds to put a person on this list, including the procedural decision on the recognition of a person as a suspect or decision of the investigator to prosecute a person as an accused in the terrorist or extremist activity.

Skrypnyk noted that such a decision violates the presumption of innocence.

“Even within the Russian legal system, the guilt of the person (Prykhodko) is not proved but he is publicly mentioned as the extremist or terrorist on the website of Rosfinmonitoring; his rights are already restricted,” she said.

Moreover, the wife of the activist Lyubov reported that the car with pension money of Oleh Prykhodko was blocked.

“He will have another payment soon. It is not clear whether the pension is of accumulative nature,” she noted.

Skrypnyk said that Prykhodko would be able to get the pension only after permission for the notary to come to the remand center and procession of proxy.

On October 10, pro-Ukrainian activist Oleh Prykhodko from Saky was detained in annexed Crimea.
