OLEKSANDR KOSTENKO

Former Crimean police officer, activist of Euromaidan and father of a minor child. When arresting him in 2014, new Crimean ‘law enforcers’ broke his hand. The occupation ‘prosecutor of Crimea’ Poklonskaya personally demanded to punish him as a representative of imaginary ‘Ukrainian fascism’ (that was how she stigmatized the democratic anti-authoritarian movement she hated). As a result, Oleksandr was found ‘guilty’ for having allegedly cast a stone at a ‘Berkut’ riot policeman during the confrontation in Kyiv in February 2014.
There is no evidence that the incident took place at all. There is no excuse for the Russian judges who tried one Ukrainian for harm allegedly done to another Ukrainian in the center of Ukrainian capital (which the Russian Criminal Code directly forbids).
Oleksandr’s mother has suffered two strokes.
