Pavlo Gryb, the Ukrainian political prisoner

The Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) put investigator of the Russian FSB Pavel Karpenyuk on the wanted list. He investigated the case of Ukrainian Pavlo Gryb arrested in Russia, as Interior Ministry reported.

According to the list of wanted people, a man dropped out of sight of the law enforcers on June 12, 2019. The SBU is searching for Karpenyuk.

The FSB investigator was provided with suspicion in absentia (prosecution of the knowingly innocent person combined with the accusation of the commitment of particularly grave crime and connected with the fabrication of evidence of accusation or other falsification). The restrictive measure was not chosen for Karpenyuk.

According to the media, wanted man is involved in the kidnapping in Belarus, detention, and arrest of Ukrainian Gryb.

Pavlo Gryb is the son of the former Ukrainian border guard Ihor Gryb. Russian special agency detained the 19-year-old boy 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 Gryb of preparing a terrorist attack at a school in Sochi (a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Black Sea coast, - 112 International).

Pavlo Gryb was not allowed to see his mother and the Ukrainian consul. Russia promises to give permission to the meeting with the consul, but only after the verdict. Yet, the consular convention signed between Ukraine and Russia does not provide for such refusal.
