The “Supreme Court” of the annexed Crimea sentenced Ukrainian citizen Andriy Zakhtei for 6,5 years of imprisonment for alleged preparation of diversions in the peninsula, as Interfax reports.

The court sentenced him to 6 years and 6 months, having counted the 1,5 year that the Ukrainian had already been detained by Russian authorities as part of this punishment. The court in the case of Zakhtei was closed to the public and conducted according to a special procedure.

On Aug. 10, 2016, the Security Service of Russia informed that they arrested a group of “Ukrainian saboteurs” who allegedly were preparing terrorist attacks on the peninsula on the night of Aug. 7. For some time, the detained had been kept in Moscow, and later on, they were returned to the annexed Crimea.

Ukrainian authorities deny the Russian accusations towards Ukrainians and called them a provocation of Russian special services.

On July 11, it became known that Zakhtei admitted to being guilty and made a deal with the investigation.
