Mykola Karpyuk, the detained Ukrainian citizen who was illegally detained in Russia, has been convoyed to the country’s Vladimir oblast. Ilya Novikov, Karpyuk’s lawyer, tweeted this on December 6.
Later that day, Novikov re-posted a message by Russia’s Federal Service for Corrections saying that Karpyuk will have to serve time in Vladimirskiy Central, one of the most infamous Russian prisons.
According to the lawyer, Karpyuk will arrive there in about two weeks.
As 112 International reported, in May this year, the Supreme Court of Chechnya (Russia) brought in the verdict of guilty in the case of Ukrainian citizens Mykola Karpyuk and Stanislav Klykh. 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.
