Ukrainian political prisoner Pavlo Gryb, charged with abetting terrorism, refused to testify at the trial in Rostov-on-Don, Russia, as Radio Liberty reports.

“I am not guilty and refuse to give any testimonies," a 20-year-old Hryb said on November 15.

As it was reported, one more figurant appeared in Gryb's case - a person with a nickname “Stefan Kapinos.” 

The political prisoner has already denied his guilt - on July 23 it was reported that the case of the Ukrainian Pavlo Gryb was returned to the prosecutors for the review.

Earlier, his father Ukrainian border guard Ihor Gryb claimed that Pavlo was psychologically pressured in the penitentiary facility. Pavlo suffers from portal hypertension. This is why he needs special medicine on the daily basis. The Ukrainian side had repeatedly expressed the corresponding requirement. The Russian Federation responded that the Ukranian wasn’t experiencing any health problems. 

Russian special service detained the 19-year-old Pavlo on August 25, 2017, when he went to Gomel (Belarus) to meet his friend. Later, he was convoyed to Russia. The Russian law enforcers suspect Pavlo Hryb of preparing a terrorist attack in a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Seacoast, - ed.).
