Pro-Russian activist from Odessa, the defendant in the “case 2 may” Vladislav Ilnicki still entered Russia. We will remind, on August 13 he tried to get into Russia through Domodedovo airport, but was detained by border guards, who, after keeping a guy almost daily in the prison to the airport and sent him back where he came from. There was a real threat of his extradition to Ukraine, where he faces a sentence of 8 to 15 years. But nothing happened, and now Vladislav is safe.
“I strayed. Legal way Vladislav Ilnicki crossed the border of the Russian Federation. Already safe. Now please do not get the guy, he will rest from their experiences and will tell itself,” — wrote on his page in the social network of the famous Odessa journalist and former political prisoner Artem Buzila. About how the inhabitants of Odessa managed to get to Moscow, Booze said in an interview with “MK”.
“From “Domodedovo”, he was deported to Chisinau, from whence he came. There it without problems missed by the Moldovan border guards, because of no stamps in my passport in “Domodedovo” it is not set. From Chisinau Vladislav flew to Belarus. And from there came to Russia. Entered the territory of the country for road transport. He also did not have a ban on entry into Russia, it’s just not allowed”.
The message of the Ukrainian border guards that Ilinetsky left the territory of Ukraine illegally, too, apparently, untrue. Recently, the activist was not under any restraint, since to extend the house arrest he forgot. It was not in the computer databases, so it is just for their records went from Odesa region to Moldova. “Theoretically, he should have asked permission to leave from the judge, says Booze. But because he had no restraint, he could move freely”.
But the problem of the political refugee does not end there. Now Ilyinicha need to be legalized, to Russia in some status.
“Now he is in a state of shock after her ordeal — said Booze. — Talking about future plans is premature. Most likely, as the majority of Ukrainian political refugees currently on the territory of the Russian Federation, it will not ask for political asylum and temporary refuge. It is a very light form of legalization. According to the laws of the Russian Federation temporary asylum get on the territory of Russian refugees threatened ecological, military, humanitarian, disaster, political persecution where they came from. I personally have received temporary asylum on the basis of documents that I was in jail for political beliefs. For a person who has grounds for obtaining such status, the problem with this usually does not happen. And he has every reason, all the necessary documents. Indictment of the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s office if the Russian notaries will notarize it, is the basis for receiving a shelter. I don’t think it will have problems”.
The error may Ilinitch was that he immediately asked for political asylum: the laws of the Russian Federation of the political asylum is not granted to persons coming from countries with which Russia has an agreement on visa-free border crossing.
“Often the basis for deportation is violation of immigration laws, says Booze. Someone within the statutory period of 90 days not received neither temporary asylum nor a residence permit or patent for work. But I want to emphasize that such cases in the past year, virtually ceased. A high-profile case of the Kharkiv journalist Andrei Warts, who was deported last fall was the last. Wart was in Russia for a very long time and in all that time have not received any documents. After the deportation, he was given a suspended sentence for separatism. After that all the detained Ukrainian political refugees was cancellation of removal, the court did not expel”.
Expulsion from the airport “Domodedovo” Odessa Pro-Russian activists, accused in the homeland in participation in mass riots on may 2, 2014, caused a storm of indignation in the media and social networks. All ended well, but this story is not closed. Still need to figure out who and on what basis it took decision not to let Ilyinicha in Russia.
