The occupiers sentenced a resident of the Kherson region to 4.3 years in prison

December 12, 2022

In December, the Dzhankoi district court sentenced a Ukrainian, a resident of the village of Novooleksiivka, Kherson region, Kostiantyn Tereshchenko, to 4 years and 3 months in a strict regime colony, who was accused of participating in the Noman Çelebicihan Crimean Tatar Volunteer Battalion.

The Crimean Tatar Resource Center strongly protests and states that this decision is illegal, politically motivated and criminal. Such a policy of the Russian Federation is a demonstration of the fight against the political beliefs of people in the occupied Crimea.

The Crimean Tatar Resource Center demands that the sentence of the person involved in the case be annulled and that other political prisoners be released immediately.

We remind you that since 2014, the Crimean Tatar Resource Center has recorded 21 detentions on charges of participation in the Noman Çelebicihan Crimean Tatar Volunteer Battalion: 6 in the occupied Crimea, 15 in the occupied Kherson region after February 24, 2022.
