STANISLAV KLYKH

Historian and journalist. Accused of involvement in the war in Chechnya, where he had never been before the investigation. In the remand prison, known as ‘Russian Guantanamo,’ he was subjected to brutal torture: electric shock, strangulation, beatings, hunger, and psychotropics. As a result of abuse, he began to suffer from mental disorder, but the functionaries of punitive system have denied him treatment. After the conviction, one more case was concocted against him for alleged ‘insult to the prosecutor.’
