I’d like to start a thread where we can share news about political prisoners who got released. Add your people about whom you want to tell others!
Alexander Kolchenko – in prison: May 2014 – Sept. 2019, a left-wing activist from Crimea, got free in a prisoner swap between Russia and Ukraine. I wish him and other former prisoners a quick recovery from all the stress and I’m looking forward to hearing good news about them!

Reporter: Will you come back to Crimea?
Kolchenko: When Putin gets toppled, definitely.
The man at the beginning of the video is Vladimir Balukh, a political activist who raised the Ukrainian flag on his farm in Crimea.
