A former analyst and journalist is named one of the detained “subversives” in Crimea


One of the three detainees from Sevastopol (annexed Crimea) named members of the “Ukrainian subversive and terrorist group” Dmitry Shtyblikov worked as an analyst of the Nomos Center for the study of geopolitical problems and Euro-Atlantic cooperation in the Black Sea region in Sevastopol.

This is a Ukrainian non-governmental analytical organization with an office located in Sevastopol.

“He had been working as an analyst and a military journalist for five or six years before the annexation. So, he was apparently included in the list of suspects. Actually he was civilian. He really was military, but a great while ago,” said the detainee’s brother Alexei Shtyblikov.

Shtyblikov stated that his brother had been detained on November 9. The brother telephoned him from the Prosecutor’s Office and said that he and other detainees had been accused of sabotage.

Dmitry Shtyblikov’s wife was detained too and named in the case as a witness.

As a reminder, today, the 10th of November, the Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia has announced detention of a Ukrainian “subversive and terrorist group” in Sevastopol.

The FSB already stated about a detention of “Ukrainian saboteurs” who had allegedly prepared attacks in Crimea in August. One of the appointed by the FSB organizers of the attacks was citizen of Ukraine Eugene Panov. The names of two other detainees were announced later. These were builder from Evpatoria (Crimea) Andrey Zahtej and Redvan Suleymanov.
