On March 13, political prisoner Vladyslav Yesypenko turned 54. He is forced to celebrate his third birthday in the dungeons of the FSB, where he was illegally placed by the occupation authorities of the peninsula. The team of the Crimean Tatar Resource Center sincerely congratulates Vladyslav Yosypenko on his birthday. We wish you a speedy release and reunification with your family and loved ones, good health, patience, unbending will and well-being!

We remind you that on March 10, 2021, in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation detained a citizen of Ukraine Vladyslav Yesypenko for collecting information in the interests of the special services of Ukraine. The man was placed under arrest until May 11. The political prisoner was tortured with electricity for two days. So he got his first testimony. On August 18, 2022, the Russian-controlled Supreme Court of Crimea commuted  Yesypenko’s sentence to five years in a penal colony and a fine of 110,000 rubles.
