"Judge Vakhit Ismailov decided not to include the new lawyers in the case. Karpiuk wrote a statement that he was satisfied with Dokka Itslayev and Ilya Novikov. Klylh announced this in court implicitly. They were brought to the Supreme court building in Grozny, but only Stanislav was taken inside the room.

"After that the judge decided that there was no need for new lawyers in this case and announced the debates, which will take place on May 11," the reporter wrote.

Earlier, two appointed lawyers appeared in the case. Lawyer Marina Dubrovina informed that the judge made the decision after having made too many remarks to the lawyers of the Ukrainians and announced that they 'allegedly disrupt the process and violate the order in the courtroom.'

The appointed lawyers did not show up at the hearing on May 4, having announced self-disqualification.
