The prisoner Lugin was transferred from Crimea to the RF immediately after complicated surgery, – his wife said

According to the information received from Irina Lugina, her husband was sent away from Crimea to Russia without medical support, even without removing his surgical sutures.

After Andrei Lugin tried to commit suicide by slitting his throat, he got operated in Simferopol Municipal Hospital No.6. There he had stayed since April 26th till May 2nd. After that he was discharged and sent to infirmary of the Simferopol Remand Prison for further medical monitoring. This is stated in his clinical report given by Mr. Lugin’s wife. The report also stated that Mr. Lugin was going to have his sutures removed on May 5th.

However, according to Irina Lugina, on May 3rd her husband was taken to the RF without medical support, without removing the sutures.

Irina has received no formal information on where her husband is. Mrs. Lugina assumes that Andrei was transferred to the Krasnodar Krai and thence to the Mordovian colony.

On April 26th, the Crimean citizen Andrei Lugin, staying in the Simferopol Remand Prison, tried to slit his throat with a sharp object. He has done this in order to avoid convoying to a Russian colony. After suicidal attempt, the man in an extremely serious condition was taken to the reanimation of Simferopol Municipal Hospital No. 6.

Let’s recall that the Crimean Andrei Lugin, the citizen of Ukraine, was convicted in a criminal case and sentenced to life imprisonment jet before the occupation of Crimea. For several years he was serving a sentence in Crimea, and then he was illegally moved from the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea to the colony of Mordovia (RF), and in January 2017 he was returned to Crimea. Appeals for his transfer as a citizen of Ukraine to the Ukrainian authorities were ignored



Crimean citizens are recruited into the Russian army in violation of the Geneva Convention on the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of WarOn 30 July, 2017 another action was held in Sevastopol calling to serve under the contract in the Russian army. The citizens of Sevastopol again were recruited for military service. At the so-called “point of selection for military service on a contract basis” they distributed booklets with agitation to serve in separate coastal defence brigade 126 and in landing ships brigade 197 of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation. Agitation was held in Sevastopol during the celebration of the day of the Navy on Nakhimov Square. According to the Crimea.Realii website, an exhibition of land military equipment was held on the same square; The exhibition included: a mobile coastal anti-ship missile system “Bastion” with a unified homing missile “Yakhont”, a mobile command and staff radio station, a floating wheeled armoured personnel carrier, an anti-aircraft missile system S-300 “Favorit” for the destruction of modern and prospective aircraft, a 122 mm missile-antiaircraft complex Grad, a multiple launch rocket system “Uragan”, an anti-aircraft missile system “Pantsir”, an air defence missile system “Osa”, a charging car, a self-propelled artillery “Gvozdika”. According to Russian media, the occupation authorities held a naval parade in the city, where military a demonstration fire was organized. The event began with the entrance of the three-masted sailing frigate “Khersones” to the Sevastopol Bay, at which students of the Ukrainian University (Kerch State Maritime Technological University) earlier had a maritime practice. According to local and Russian media, the training ship “Perekop”, missile cruiser “Moscow” and the diesel-electric submarine “Stary Oskol”, as well as the naval aviation Ka-27 helicopters and Su-30SM fighters, also took part in the military parade. Such actions of the Russian Federation in the territory of Ukraine, which was occupied by it, grossly violate international humanitarian law and are prohibited by international conventions. The Crimean Human Rights Group (CHRG) earlier recorded the holding of similar agitation events for military service in the Russian army in the occupied peninsula. We remind you that Article 51 of the Geneva Convention on the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War explicitly prohibits the invocation of an occupying power in the occupied territory. The head of the CHRG, Olga Skrypnik, noted that among other things the Convention prohibits propaganda of the military conscription in the occupied territories, including all the advertising posters, various “patriotic” events in schools and universities where people are called to go to the Russian army. Both contractual and regular service are under the ban. Photos of the mobile point of military drafting and promotional booklets were made on 30 July in Sevastopol.
