Judge Vahid Ismayilov once again rejected the defense’s motion for termination of the criminal prosecution of Ukrainians under Art. 209 of the Criminal Code (robbery) due to the expiration of the statute of limitations, the journalist wrote on Facebook.

The judge also appointed two additional defenders: "The judge considered all his warnings to us, saying that we have allegedly been hindering the hearings, appointed with his ruling two lawyers for Karpiuk and Klykh. We objected, but we have not been heard,” said the lawyer, Marina Dubrovina.
