VADYM SIRUK

Commerce worker from south Crimea. Accused of involvement in a ‘terrorist organization’ on the ‘basis’ of a banal kitchen conversation recorded by a provocateur. Having sent him to pretrial jail, the FSB searched his parents’ home: nothing suspicious was found, but the Russian TV showed a falsified video filmed in another apartment with safes and banned literature. At the time of Vadim’s arrest, his wife was expecting their second child, who would born in August 2016. “It is a pity that the first breath of this little girl came in a time when her father cannot breathe the air of freedom,” wrote the founder of Bizim Balalar (Our Children) initiative Lilya Budzhurova.
