Kremlin critic Ilya Yashin in court in Moscow last December.

Kremlin critic Ilya Yashin (39) has to go to a prison camp for eight and a half years. This is because he is said to have spread “false information about the Russian army”, as the Russian authorities announced in early December.

Against the background of the Ukraine war, he posted on YouTube last April: “It’s a purely apocalyptic scene, like in horror films.” And he meant the massacre that took place in the Ukrainian city of Bucha, in which around 400 people died. Yashin: “Bodies of civilians lying on the street, mass graves with civilians who were quickly covered with sand: we have all seen this horrific picture of the city streets now.”
