Ukraine is under siege following a full-scale military invasion by Russia on 24 February 2022
April 2, 2020, 3:33 p.m. | Illegal prison on the territory of IZOLYATSIA in Donetsk
The most recent hearing in the case of Roman Lyagin, founding father of the DPR, was held on April 2, 2020 in the Shevchenko Court of Kyiv. Two of the judges who had already been conducting this case for a year abruptly decided to recuse themselves after remembering that they have relatives in the Donetsk region. The meeting was held behind closed doors and activists who came to monitor the hearing were unable to attend because of court quarantine regime.
It is clear that this year, during which the trial of Roman Lyagin's case has been postponed five (!) times, has been spent in vain for the Ukrainian public. Precious time has been wasted in the administration of justice and in obtaining testimony from a valuable witness with key information on the involvement of Russian special forces in the occupation of the Donbas. Such testimony is crucial for proving Russia's involvement in military aggression against Ukraine in international courts.
