One of the prisoners has been already transported to the detention center No. 3. The second one is still being convoyed, TASS reports their lawyer Svetlana Sidorkina as saying.
“Sentsov and Kolchenko have been convoyed to Chelyabinsk. According to my information, one of them is now in the detention center No. 3, and the second one is still being convoyed,” Sidorkina said.
However, the press service of the Federal Penitentiary Service in Chelyabinsk region has not yet officially confirmed it.
“Under current legislation, we do not have the right to disclose information about the convicts being convoyed,” the agency press service told TASS.
Ukrainian film director Oleh Sentsov and civic activist Oleksandr Kolchenko were convicted with regard to a trumped up case over the alleged impending terrorist attack in Crimea, and the Russian court sentenced them to 20 and 10 years in prison respectively.
