    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!


    (At time 5:37)
    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.

    (Don’t buy mass media noise about “a step towards peace”, Russia got a witness (and possibly an accomplice) of the takedown of MH17 in exchange and that’s the only reason why the swap happened IMHO.)

    Can we mention those who are still locked up, like Chelsea Manning, for example?

    Chelsea Manning

    And I’d personally like to remember a friend from Clarksdale who served 6 months for daring to protest at Fort Benning with School of the Americas Watch.

    And of course, there is Julian Assange
