Declaration by the Rupression-campaign

Several women have spoken up with their stories of violence and abuse perpetrated by Arman Sagynbayev - we have no reason not to believe them. Arman has always had a questionable reputation. As an example, long before the arrests, Victor Filinkov and Igor Shishkin stopped their communication with him; some of the other defendants were barely familiar with him. Many of us didn’t know the details, because not all the stories, which are rather personal, were known more widely. We didn’t expect him to continue to be dangerous for women while in jail and that’s why we didn't give enough attention to the details. Now we recognize and understand, that it was a mistake. 

The stories shared by these women have left no space for doubts: that’s why the collective Rupression must announce, that we stop any personal support to Arman from our side. We do not collect any money for him, and we do not send postcards and letters. 
 
It is important to clarify that Arman’s lawyers were paid by his relatives from the very beginning.

This group of women shared their stories when they got information that his abusive behaviour is still continuing - he continues to deceive those with whom he corresponds and manipulates people. We’d like to show support to the victims and hope that their bravery will help others protect themselves from Arman’s actions.

All the persons involved in this case are political prisoners and we have no doubts that Arman has suffered from the cruel torture by the FSB same as the others. All accused without exception should be free, and those who are responsible for the torture should take their places.

The results of the first 30 years of “democracy” in Ukraine are, to put it mildly, unconvincing. The economy and the media are in the hands of rival oligarchs, corruption is at staggering levels, economic development lags behind many African countries, and in addition, the country has become the...
