The Southern District Military Court sentenced Dmitry Shtyblikov to 19 and a half years in a strict regime colony, previously convicted in one of the cases against “Ukrainian saboteurs”.
The press service of the court also announced the appointment of 13 years of strict regime to the Russian officer Alexander Obloga.
Whether they were in the same case is not specified. There are no details about the accusations against Shtyblikov and Obloga.
The verdict was handed down on April 27, follows from messages representation of the President of Ukraine in Autonomous Republic of Crimea. The agency said it considered it illegal and “revenge for Shtyblikov’s pro-Ukrainian stance.”
In 2017, Dmitry Shtyblikov made a deal with the investigation and pleaded guilty in the case of preparing sabotage in Crimea. He was sentenced to five years in prison. In November 2021, he was supposed to be released, but against him filed a criminal case on treason and left in custody.
By the time the news was published, Meduza could not find any mention of the case against Alexander Obloga. A serviceman with that name is mentioned on the Ukrainian website “Peacemaker”, which publishes the data of people whom the authors of the site consider a threat to the national security of Ukraine.
