7 Sentences for Evading the Service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Passed by Crimea ‘Courts’ for a Month

In November the Crimean Human Rights Group recorded 4 new criminal cases against the Crimean residents under RF CC Article 328 (Evading the service in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation) and 7 new sentences issued under RF CC Article 328.

Totally for the entire occupation period, as of the end of November 2021, the CHRG documented 275 criminal cases initiated for evading the RF Army military service, that were sent to the Crimean ‘courts’ for considering, with verdicts delivered for 266 of them and 9 being still under consideration.

To remind: the conscription of occupied territories residents into the ranks of the army of the occupying power as well as the ongoing propaganda of service in the RF Armed Forces on the territory of Crimea, violate Art. 51 of the Convention Relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War (Fourth Geneva Convention).

In addition, the transfer of Ukrainian citizens to serve in the regions of Russia violates Art. 49 of this convention.
