Russian occupants are trying to force political prisoner Volodymyr Yakymenko to take part in the Russian-Ukrainian war. After the man refused, he was threatened that he would be forcibly taken away. This was reported by the wife of the political prisoner Aliona Yakymenko.

“If last time my husband was locked up in a club, this time they were forced to go and listen to calls that Ukrainians should be killed. First, 2 employees of the colony, and later 3 more almost forcibly forced Vladimir to leave. The husband categorically refused to go, saying that he was not a terrorist like them, and that he loved his country and was not going to fight against his people. It came to a strong scandal, but still Vladimir managed to stay in the barracks”,- the message said.

After the man refused, threats were made to him, and they also said that they would take everyone away for the third time and he won’t get off.

Recall that on June 11, 2017, Ukrainian Volodymyr Yakymenko was detained when he crossed the administrative border with the occupied Crimea. The man was charged with drug trafficking. A Kremlin-controlled court in Crimea sentenced him to 15.5 years in prison under Art. 229.1 part 4, part 3, art. 30 h. 5, art. 228.1 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.
