Judge of the Shevchenko district court of Kyiv Volodymyr Bugil ruled in the case of ex-leader of Odesa Right Sector organization Serhiy Sternenko and decided to send the suspect under round-the-clock house arrest. This is stated in the court decision, which the defendant published on his Facebook page.
“Around-the-clock house arrest. 60 days. They’ve completely gone crazy. As I said, this decision was written before the trial,” Sternenko wrote.
The court also rejected the suspect's request for the application of a preventive measure against him in the form of personal surety.
The court decision also states that far-right Serhiy Sternenko is prohibited around the clock from leaving his place of registration. He is also obliged to hand over the passport and other documents, which give the activist the right to leave Ukraine, to be kept by the investigator.
According to the journalist of the 112 Ukraine TV channel, Volodymyr Linnyk, who is under the walls of the court, Sternenko himself is dissatisfied with the decision, as are his supporters.
“There are a lot of people. Now the crowd has quieted down a bit, their mood is dying out a bit. They are waiting for Sternenko. A few minutes ago they lit fires, shouted chants. Now one of the activists is speaking into the loudspeaker,” the correspondent said.
Thus, Serhiy Sternenko will remain under house arrest until August 13, 2020, inclusive.
As we reported earlier, two men, who attacked ex-leader of Right Sector cell Serhiy Sternenko in 2018, in Odesa, were notified on suspicion.
