Ukrainian political prisoner was allowed to marry in the Crimean prison


Ukrainian Andriy Kolomiets, sentenced by the Crimean Court to 10 years of imprisonment, received permission to marry.

This was announced by former Crimean political prisoner Gennady Afanasiev.

“Andriy Kolomiets, who participated in the Revolution of Dignity, who was put to electricity shock tortures by the FSB, who was tried for allegedly throwing Molotov cocktails at the Berkut, is going to marry! The wedding is under way, they collect documents. Love penetrates everywhere even through the prison gates!” posted Afanasiev in Facebook.

As a reminder, Ukrainian activist Andriy Kolomiets was sentenced to 10 years of imprisonment in a penal colony in Crimea. He was accused of attempting to murder two former Berkut (former Ukrainian law enforcement unit) officers during the protests on the Maidan square in Kiev.

At the hearing, Kolomiets’ lawyer turned the Court’s attention to the tortures put on the suspect after his detention, as well as falsification of evidence.
