Judge of the Shevchenkivsky District Court Pavel Slobodyanyuk delivered judgment to arrest the head of the public organization “Civil Corps Azov-Crimea” Stanislav Krasnov till April 26.

This was reported by civil society activist Bogdan Tizkij from the courtroom.

He said that Slobodyanyuk had quickly read the Court’s decision to arrest Krasnov, which was suspected by the Security Service (SBU) of illegal keeping of ammunition, treason and terrorism.

“He has quickly read and disappeared,” said Tizkij, adding that people in the courtroom met the judge’s decision with cries “Gan’ba!”(Shame!).

A fight between activists and police occurred when the police officers tried to bring Krasnov out from the courtroom. The activists blocked the vehicle for detainees’ transportation near the courthouse.
