The pro-Ukrainian activist Oleg Prikhodko, who was arrested in the Crimea, was charged with “illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation or carrying of explosives or explosive devices.” Sayslawyer Nazim Sheikhmambetov.   

“They brought up another article of the Criminal Code and connected it into one criminal case. In fact, they added another article to him, ”said the lawyer.

According to him, Prikhodko added a charge under Part 1 of Art. 222.1 of the Criminal Code of Russia (illegal acquisition, transfer, sale, storage, transportation or carrying of explosives or explosive devices). “The criminal case is one thing, but to those accusations that were earlier – the illegal manufacture of explosives and an attempt to commit a terrorist act – they added the illegal purchase or storage of explosives.”

Oleg Prikhodko was detained on October 10, 2019. The FSB accused him of preparing for a terrorist act and the illegal manufacture of explosives.

Prior to this, Prikhodko was held accountable in the Crimea for an administrative case. The Saki district court of Crimea on June 25 fined a Crimean citizen 2,000 rubles. The court found him guilty of the first part of Article 20.3 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of Russia.
