A Crimean Gennady Afanasyev, who has been condemned by the Russian Federation for seven years' imprisonment in the case of "Crimean terrorists," has been once again transferred to a punishment cell for 15 days, his mother Olga Afanasyeva wrote on Facebook.

- I'm sitting in a punishment isolation cell for undeserved 15 days. I read Balzac, Stendhal's "The Red and the Black", Sigmund Freud, study sociology and economics. In general, everything is stable in my struggle. Well, how else? Gennady wrote in a letter to his mother.

The political prisoner also wrote on a piece of paper marked "I’ll come soon" that his tattoos have been captured and sent for examination.

- They took many pics of my tattoos and sent them for examination, saying that I am a Nazi and must be fined ... This Russia))) wrote a guy.

The FSB arrested Gennadiy Afanasyev in May last year, accused him of involvement "in Sentsov’s terrorist organizations" and sentenced to seven years in prison.

To serve the sentence Afanasyev was sent to the PEC-25 in the city of Syktyvkar. Due to the health problems Afanasyev jointly with a human rights defender Ernest Mezak and a lawyer Alexander Popkov launched a lawsuit, asking to transfer him to a colony in Rostov, Voronezh or Krasnodar regions.

March, 9 the Municipal Court in the city of Syktyvkar (Russia) has satisfied the claim to change the place of service and allowed to convoy him from the prison in the Republic of Komi closer to home in Crimea.
