The Russian list of terrorists and extremists includes 22 names of native Crimeans — political prisoners, journalists and public activists.

The full list is published on the official site of the Federal Service for Financial Monitoring of Russia (the Rosfinmonitoring – ed.).

According to the document, the Rosfinmonitoring ranked among the terrorists and extremists the “Crimean four” political prisoners on the “Sentsov’s case”: Olexander Kolchenko, Oleg Sentsov, Olexij Chirnij and recently discharged from prison Gennady Afanasyev.

Blogger Yuri Ilchenko, who was arrested after publishing an article in which he spoke out against the Russian occupation of Crimea and Russia’s actions against Ukraine in Donbas, is included in the list too.

Also the head of the civilian corps “Azov-Crimea” Stanislav Krasnov, who is judged in Ukraine on charges of illegal weapon possession, and the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) suspects him of having relations with the Russian secret services, is in the list of “terrorists”.

Crimean journalist Anna Andrievskaya can be found in the list, too.

Also the name of the Crimean journalist, freelance reviewer of Radio Liberty Mykola Semena, who is subjected to persecution and is accused of “separatism” by the Russian FSB in the annexed peninsula, is also in the list.

The total federal list of terrorists and extremists is in the section “Russian individuals” of the Rosfinmonitoring website and includes 6103 persons.
