Ukrainian Hryb to be tried via Skype

A 19-year-old Ukrainian Pavlo Hryb, who was imprisoned in Russia, will not be taken to a court session on November 7, and it will be held via a videoconference, his father, Ihor Hryb, has told Hromadske Radio.

"It will be an appeals court [session]. Unfortunately, it will be held in a videoconference mode, in accordance with Russian legislation, as Russian lawyer Andrei Sabinin told us. He will not be brought to court," Hryb said.

According to him, journalists and one of Pavlo Hryb's relatives will attend the court session.

He added that there was no information about the health of his son.

As Ukrinform reported, on September 4, 2017, former border guard Ihor Hryb issued an appeal regarding the disappearance of his son. On August 24, 2017, Pavlo Hryb was illegally detained on Belarusian territory and subsequently transferred to Russia, probably with the participation of FSB officers. A court in Krasnodar extended Hryb's arrest until January 4, 2018.
