January 18, 2023

The Voroshilovsky District Court of Russian Rostov-on-Don extended the term of imprisonment of political prisoner Oleh Prykhodko, who was previously sentenced to 5 years in prison in a strict regime colony.

According to the Ukrainian newsteller Graty, the Russian court decided that Oleh Prykhodko during the trial on preparing a terrorist attack insulted witnesses for the prosecution, in particular, employees of the FSB of the Russian Federation. As a result, the occupiers added a month to five years of imprisonment.

Note that this happened in the spring of 2022, but it became known only now.

We remind you that on February 8, 2019, Russian security officials searched the dwelling of pro-Ukrainian activist Oleg Prykhodko in the village of Orikhove, Saky District.

On October 9, 2019, Russian security officials again broke into Oleh Prykhodko’s dwelling and kidnapped him. On October 10, a search was conducted in his dwelling, during which the man was detained. His wife Liubov Prykhodko was also detained. The activist is accused of “terrorism” and “manufacture of explosives.” The woman was detained as a witness, but later released. On October 10, the so-called Kyiv District Court arrested Oleh Prykhodko until December 10. Later Prykhodko’s DNA samples were illegally taken. According to lawyer Nazim Sheikhmambetov, this was done for the purpose of falsifying evidence. The political prisoner had his measure of restraint repeatedly extended

On March 3, the Southern District Military Court in Rostov-on-Don announced the verdict to Oleg Prykhodko. The occupants sentenced him to 5 years of imprisonment in a strict regime colony with the first year in prison.
