Ostap Stakhiv, the leader of the anti-vaccination movement in Ukraine has been taken to the pre-trial detention facility in Lviv. He could also leave on a bail in the amount of 37,500 $. reported that on November 18.

The prosecution insisted on the arrest or the bail because the investigation team has not yet identified all members and coordinators of the crime, and Stakhiv has an option to affect these people or destroy the evidence. Besides, the court surmises that the activist could run away; over the last several months, he often stayed in various cities of Ukraine and went to the other region as soon as he received the motion for choosing the restriction measure for him. 

Stakhiv does not recognize his guilt. The prosecution charged him with the attempt to change the constitutional order of the state while being funded by the Russian Federation. The man claims that all charges are unreasoned.

During the quarantine in Lviv, Ostap Stakhiv and his associates conducted rallies against the vaccination and masks, claiming it was against the rights of Ukrainian citizens. Stakhiv and his sidekicks gathered the NGO called "Human Rights".

Several days ago, SBU searched Stakhiv's apartment and notified him of suspicion of the attempt to change the constitutional order in Ukraine. The special service assumes he was funded and instructed by the Russian sponsors.
