Earlier, a 'prosecutor' of the Crimea Supreme Court, which is currently under the control of the Russian Federation, requested 10.5 years in prison for Ukrainian political prisoner Yevhen Panov.

In August 2016, The Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation claimed to have detained Ukrainian saboteurs in Crimea. Russia says that Ukrainian diversionary group planned terrorist acts in the occupied Crimea, and Yevhen Panov, born in 1977, residing in Zaporizhia region, an officer of the Chief Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, was allegedly the leader of the group.

Later Russian authorities released a video with Panov’s confession, however, Ukrainian human rights defenders stated that the video showed the signs of testifying under duress
