Russia: The charges of terrorism against two Ukrainians should be withdrawn and all torture allegations investigated
The charges of terrorism against Ukrainian film director Oleg Sentsov and his co-defendant, ecologist Aleksandr Kolchenko, currently on trial in the military court in Rostov-on-Don in southern Russia, are excessive and should be withdrawn. They are Ukrainian citizens and residents of Crimea who opposed its Russian annexation at the time of their arrest. There are serious concerns that the two men may be targeted solely for their opposition to the Russian intervention in and annexation of Crimea.
