 Chechen court rejected appeal of political prisoners Karpiuk and Klykh

The Supreme Court of Chechnya has denied an appeal of Ukrainian political prisoners Mykola Karpiuk and Stanislav Klykh, accused of killing Russian servicemen.

Censor.NET reports citing Hromadske radіo.

"The mother [of Klylh - ed.] feels bad. We've called another ambulance. She can't walk. Stas Klykh started to yell, became hysterical after seeing his mother, hung on the cage. All these young men left the room. Dokka Itslaev, lawyer, said those present explained they had been invited by the judge. They were representatives of non-governmental organizations and students," Hromadske correspondent reports.

"Both the investigation and prosecution know very well I did not participate in the war in Chechnya. I was detained and put in custody only for being a Ukrainian and trying do something to strengthen the Ukrainian statehood during my entire life. Apparently, Moscow believes that this is a very grave crime," Mykola Karpiuk said in the courtroom.

Stanislav Klykh was removed from the courtroom after he started to shout out incoherent phrases in a fit of hysteria, while his mother almost swooned at that moment.
