Ukrainian political prisoner Oleksandr Shumkov, sentenced in Russia to four years of detention on a charge of the membership in Right Sector, was transferred from the colony in Torzhok to one of Moscow remand centers, as Hraty reported citing his lawyer Roman Lyzlov.
Earlier we reported that Oleksandr Shumkov went on a hunger strike due to the systematic violation of his rights by the administration of the colony and strengthening of the psychological pressure on him by the workers of the colony.
Oleksandr Shumkov disappeared in September 2017. It had become known later that he was in the Russian detention center. But he was validated legally on the border with the Russian Federation on August 23, 2017.
The mother and friends of the Ukrainian do not believe that he voluntary came to Russia as he was the active member of the far-right movement in Ukraine.
