Court Upholds Decision To Jail Ukrainians Karpiuk, Klykh For 22.5 And 20 Years For Assertedly Murdering Russian Soldiers In Chechnya In 1994-1995

The Russian Supreme Court has upheld the decision to sentence Ukrainian citizens Mykola Karpiuk and Stanislav Klykh to 22.5 years and 20 years in prison, respectively, for assertedly murdering Russian soldiers in Chechnya during the period of 1994-1995.

The Russian news agency TASS reported this, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The court has decided to uphold the decision of the Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic and reject the defense’s appeal,” the head of the court’s panel of judges is quoted as saying.

During consideration of the appeal, defense lawyers asked the court to overturn the sentences and acquit the defendants.

The defendants, who participated in the court proceedings via videoconference from remand prison, said they gave testimony under torture and that the process took place in violation of the Russian legislation.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Supreme Court of the Chechen Republic sentenced Karpiuk and Klykh to 22.5 years and 20 years in prison, respectively, in May for murdering Russian soldiers in Chechnya during the period of 1994-1995.
