At the end of May, anarchist Alexey Rozhkov was illegally extradited from Kyrgyzstan to Russia. Without observing the procedures under Kyrgyz law and international norms, officers from the Kyrgyz State Committee for National Security kidnapped Alexey and took him to the Russian Federation, where he was detained by FSB officers. The former threatened Alexei with torture, and the FSB put those threats into action — the young man told us that he had been tasered.
In Russia, a case has been opened against Rozhkov for committing arson in March 2022 on a military enlistment office in the suburbs of Yekaterinburg. After six months in pre-trial detention he was then released, and Alexey fled Russia, fearing a reclassification of the case to an act of terrorism.
After Alexey found himself back in a Russian pre-trial detention centre, the trial was resumed and the prosecutor requested that the case be remanded for further investigation.
The case is now under investigation for charges of property damage, but given recent trends there is a high risk of reclassification to a more serious article.
Solidarity zone has found a lawyer to defend Alexey and he has already begun working on the case. 150 thousand roubles (1577 Euros) is needed to pay for his work for the next stage.
