A new sentence of Sevastopoler Dmytro Shtyblikov, one of defendants of the Case of Crimean Commandos, was pronounced by court in Rostov-na-Donu
This is reported by Representative Office of President of Ukraine for Autonomous Republic of Crimea.
“Today, a Russian court in Rostov-na-Donu announced a verdict in a new illegal case against Dmytro Shtyblikov, a military expert, and a Ukrainian journalist from Crimea – 19 years and 6 months in confinement under Article 275 of the Russian Criminal Code (High Treason),” – the communication informed.
To remind: in early November, 2021 one of defendants of the ‘Case of Crimean Commandos’ – Dmytro Shtyblikov from Sevastopol – could be released as the term of his sentence in Russia expired. But this did not happen, as he has been under investigation in the new criminal case.
- Former Ukrainian Navy officers Oleksiy Bessarabov, Volodymyr Dudka and Dmytro Shtyblikov were convicted on charges of “preparing the sabotage of military infrastructure and life support facilities in Sevastopol on the instructions of Ukraine’s military intelligence.” They have been in custody since November 9, 2016.
- On November 16, 2017, Dmytro Shtyblikov, admitting his guilt under pressure, was sentenced to 5 years in the maximum security penal colony under RF CC Article 30-1, Article 281-2(a) (“Preparation for sabotage within an organized group”), Article 222-3 (“Illegal acquisition, and storage of weapons, and ammunition, committed by an organized group”), Article 222.1-3 (“Illegal acquisition, storage of explosive substances or devices committed by an organized group”).
