"Stanislav Klykh has been found. He was returned to the colony in Verkhneuralsk. Yesterday, he was visited by local lawyer who takes care of Stanislav (controls the conditions of stay, etc.), upon a request of Chelyabinsk human rights activists addressed by Stanislav Klykh's mother, Tamara Ivanivna," Tomak wrote.

No more details are available at the moment.

Tomak also mentioned the importance of creating coordination center on political prisoners.

Earlier, the court of Grozny (Russia) convicted two citizens of Ukraine May 19. Chechnya's Supreme Court sentenced Karpiuk to 22 years and six months in a high-security prison and Klykh to 20 years in prison May 26. The Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic of the Russian Federation dismissed the appeal of Ukrainians Mykola Karpiuk and Stanislav Klykh against their confinement June 14.

Feb. 17, 2016, Russian Human Rights Center Memorial recognized citizens of Ukraine Mykola Karpiuk and Stanislav Klykh political prisoners whom Russia was unlawfully holding in prison. According to human rights activists, the indictment in this case was made with violations and described nonexistent crimes.
