According to the court, Pavel Kovshov, Vladislav Ilnitsky and Alexander Dzyubenko will be freed from jail. In making this decision, the court took into account their positive personal characteristics, the presence of stable social relations, a permanent job, etc. The measure of restraint for the other seven accused, detained since May 2014, was left unchanged, extending their period of detention for another two months. 

Recall that 20 people in total are charged in the case of the unrest on May 2, 2014, in the Greek area and its surroundings, all of them are activists of Kulikovo Field.

[Translators note: On May 2, 2014, neo-Nazi militants from Western Ukraine rampaged through Odessa. They destroyed the anti-fascist encampment on Kulikovo Field and killed at least 48 activists at the House of Trade Unions. However, only the victims were charged. The Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics have included these political prisoners on the list for prisoner exchanges with the Ukrainian junta.]
