Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh

On March 29, Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh was convoyed to the penal colony number 4 in Torzhok town, Tver region. This is reported by lawyer of Balukh, Taras Omelchenko.

In this colony, Balukh will stay during his further term according to the illegal verdict of the Crimean "court".

Balukh was arrested on December 8, 2016, nine days after he nailed a plaque renaming his home No. 18 to “Heroes of Nebesna Sotnya St’ in memory of the over 100 Maidan activists who were killed during Euromaidan protests in Ukraine. 

He had rejected the demands of the head of the local council to remove it. During an irregular ‘search’ of his home, 90 bullets and several TNT explosive devices were allegedly found in his attic. 

The implausibility of the charges was just one of several compelling reasons why the renowned Memorial Human Rights Centre declared him a political prisoner well before the trial.

Earlier Ukrainian political prisoner Volodymyr Balukh could not receive delivery from Nataliya Balukh in Simferopol remand center, as Crimean human rights group reported.

The workers of the prison explained that Balukh’s documents were not printed. This is why Nataliya was denied to pass the delivery.

“Since Wednesday, over three working days, people responsible for deliveries did not receive required documents, and the chiefs do not work on Saturday and Sunday,” Nataliya Balukh said.
