Citizen journalist and nurse Iryna Danylovych, who was unlawfully sentenced to almost seven years in prison by the occupiers, has been moved to Russia.

Her father, Bronyslav Danylovych, told Suspilne Crimea about this.

"Yesterday, they took Iryna away, we don't know where, but most likely to Krasnodar. I don't know how she survived the transfer. A week ago, when I visited, she told me that she might not survive the trip because of the pain and whistling in her ear," he said.

According to the political prisoner's father, she received no medical care in the pretrial detention center.

"In the eight months of her illness, she was never examined by an ENT doctor. She was also not given back her personal belongings, which were stolen by the PTDC staff. They even stole a book of V. Polozkova's poems, claiming this was because she had a pro-Ukrainian position," emphasized Bronyslav Danylovych.

As IMI reported, on June 29, 2023, it was reported that the Russian-backed Supreme Court of Crimea changed the ruling in the case of Iryna Danylovych, who had been previously sentenced to seven years in prison on charges of storing an explosive device.

Iryna Danylovych was detained on April 29 in the occupied Crimea. She was detained on her way from work on the road from Koktebel to Feodosia. Her house in Vladislavivka village was searched, her phone and laptop were seized.

On July 3, a number of human rights organizations demanded that the Russian authorities release Iryna Danylovych, a citizen journalist convicted in Crimea, and called on Ukraine to include her on the prisoner swap list and prevent her transfer to Russia.
