 Beziazykov's lawyer: "Die there, spend two years in captivity, return, and be destroyed by authorities"

The lawyer of Ukrainian Army Colonel Ivan Bezyazykov says the court's ruling to arrest his client for two months is unfair.

Oleh Veremeienko, Beziazykov's lawyer, told 112 Ukraine, Censor.NET reports.

"I will be short - this is 1937 returning. This is the best advertising for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Go serve, die there, spend two years in captivity, then return, and the authorities will destroy you here," Veremeienko said.

In his turn, deputy head of Prosecutor General's Office Oleh Peresada said the decision was grounded.

"This is the ruling I expected. It's balanced and grounded. So I believe that this pre-trial restraint measure is unbiased and necessary, given the evidence we have gathered," Peresada said.

As reported, Ukraine's Security Service suspects Beziazykov of involvement in a terrorist organization. According to the SBU, he collected information about the anti-terrorist operation (ATO) forces after he was allegedly converted in the militants' captivity and the Russian military agencies provided him with a weapon, cash allowance, and a car with a driver.
