OLEKSIY CHYRNIY

History teacher, arrested after the Russian annexation of Crimea. For 9 months, he was kept in complete isolation. Chekists tried to prove he had automatically acquired Russian citizenship, but he insisted on his Ukrainian nationality. Under torture (and probably under the influence of psychotropics), he ‘confessed’ to ‘terrorism’ and concluded a deal with investigators. The evidence wrested from him was used to convict Oleg Sentsov and Oleksandr Kolchenko.
