Today, on May 17, the RF Military Court of Appeal considered an appeal in a criminal case against Ukrainian activist Oleh Prykhod’ko, w accused of making and keeping an improvised explosive device as well as intending to blow up the building of the Saki District Administration.
The panel of judges chaired by Sergei Vinnik upheld the decision of the first instance court, that found Mr.Prykhod’ko guilty and sentenced to five years in prison.
At the same time, the court of appeal ignored the arguments of the defense about numerous violations during the investigation and that the court of first instance had failed to assess these circumstances when considering the case.
