Oleh Sentsov’s hearing postponed




“ARC Mobil Team” human rights activists in Crimea reports that according to Oleh Sentsov’s defense attorney, Dmitry Dinze, the hearing to extend Oleh’s detention period has been postponed until July 7th, 2014 at 11:00 AM. It will be held at Lefortovo Moscow district court with Judge Galihanova presiding.

Oleh is holding up, even though according to his sister, he looks 10 years older.

Ukrainian filmmaker and activist Oleh Sentsov was arrested by Russian FSB agents in Crimea on May 11th, 2014. He was tortured by the FSB demanding that he admit his guilt in an attempt to organize a terrorist act. He has been held in Lefortovo prison since May 26th, 2014.

Lefortovo is the de facto official FSB prison.

Three more Crimean activists are being detained in this same case: antifascist and eco-activist Oleksandr “Tundra” Kolchenko, photographer and lawyer Hennady Afanasyev and historian Oleksiy Cherniy.

    The neo-soviet russian swine are yet again, showing they cannot be trusted by civilized human beings.
    Here is one of the many kidnappings done by the russians in crimea. They used two vans, one the darker one on the left and the white one was where the person kidnapped was dumped into, the kidnap team. The van across the street is the one that has probably 10 heavily armed russians inside in case anyone intervenes.

    They stole that guys phone because they didn’t know if he took any pictures/video of it.
    But they didn’t know there was a security camera at the bus stop.
