A few months ago, on November 27, 2019, Russian security services detained 64-year-old Halyna Dolhopolova on suspicion of state treason. Crimean Human Rights Group reported this.

According to the press service of the FSB of the Russian Federation, the woman was allegedly recruited by Ukrainian intelligence services and, on the instructions of the Main Intelligence Directorate, “was gathering secret military information.”

Leninsky District Court sentenced the woman under the article of the Criminal Code of Russian Federation for state treason. She was chosen a preventive measure in form of an arrest for two months, that is, until January 26, 2020.

As it was reported earlier, at least 89 people stay in Russian jails in Crimean cases. The majority of the convicted, 65 people, are Crimean Tatars. Head of Crimean human rights group Olha Skrypnyk stated the the rights of these people were flagrantly violated as the evidence against them was rigged and they are kept behind the bars illegally.
