KRASNODAR (QHA) -

Political prisoner Andrei Kolomiets, convicted in the occupied Crimea for participation in the Revolution of Dignity has been convoyed to a colony in the city of Krasnodar, the Crimean Human Rights Group posted on its Facebook page with reference to documents obtained fromthe "court" by the prisoner’s wife.

One of the documents indicates that Andrei Kolomiets was transferred on November 22, 2016 to serve his sentence at the Federal state institution penal colony No. 14, located: 58, Kalinina Street, Krasnodar city, Krasnodar region, Russia.

Thus, the occupation authorities and the "court" of Crimea once again violated the rules of the Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War, when transporting prisoners from the occupied territory to the territory of the occupying state.

As QHA reported earlier, Andrei Kolomiets was detained by Russian law enforcement officers in the Kabardino-Balkaria, and then transported to Crimea for trial. The occupation court found that the Ukrainian citizen is guilty of murder of two former members of "Berkut" units during the events on the Maidan in Kyiv, as well as storage and distribution of drugs. Andrei Kolomiets was sentenced by Russian court to 10 years in prison. Human rights activists consider the case completely fabricated, and Andrei Kolomiets the Kremlin political prisoner.
