On Wednesday, December 21, it became known that an activist and former political prisoner of the Kremlin, Hennadii Afanasyev, died at the front. The team of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center expresses sincere condolences to all relatives and friends.

We remind you that in 2014, Gennady spoke out against the Russian occupation of Crimea, after which he was detained in Simferopol by FSB officers on charges of preparing terrorist attacks. Together with him, other defendants in this case were also detained. However, later he still managed to return to his homeland thanks to another exchange.

Subsequently, the man moved to the United States, but after the full-scale invasion of Russia into Ukraine, Hennadii Afanasiev went to serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It is known that he died in the Luhansk region near Bilohorivka.

The former political prisoner is survived by his wife and little daughter, who was born in October 2020.

Sincere condolences!
