Attorney Ilya Novikov, who along with Mark Feigin and Nikolai Polozovoy defend Ukrainian female aviator Nadezhda Savchenko, now will also defend Nicholay Karpyuk attrial in Russia, Novikov reported in Twitter Oct.12.
Karpyuk is being charged with taking part in the fighting against Russian troops in the ranks of the UNA-UNSO (The Ukrainian National Assembly – Ukrainian People's Self-Defence) in the mid 90s. His will be tried in the Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic under Section 102 of the RSFSR (Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic) Criminal Code (premeditated murder under aggravating circumstances).
Novikov will protect Karpyuk together with a lawyer Dokka Itslaev from the city of Grozny. Stanislav Klyh - another Ukrainian, who is on trial in the same case – is defended by Marina Dubrovina. The Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation accuses Karpyuk of leading along with the late Alexander Muzychko the Viking gang that allegedly committed crimes in the Chechen Republic in the 90s.
Ukrainian Alexander Malofeev who also testified in the court said that acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk also fought in Chechnya. As reported earlier, for a long time neither Consul of Ukraine, nor even the lawyers have been permitted to see the detainees Nikolai Karpyuk and Stanislav Klyh. The latter said most of the testimony, obtained by the investigating authorities and published in the media, have been given under pressure and tortures.
