He told a Russian lawer that he had been kidnapped in Belarus and brough to Russia, where he is accused under Article 205.1 of Criminal Code of Russia (Abetting of the terrorist activities). The Ukrainian's lawyer said that Gryb was arrested in Russia in absentia

Pavlo's father also said that the teenager needs proper medication, as otherwise the consequences could be fatal.
