Nova Kakhovka-based activist Serhiy Tsyhipa, who was sentenced to 13 years in prison by Russia, has been moved to Skopin (Ryazan region, Russia), where he is to serve his prison term.

His wife Olena announced this on Hromadske Radio.

She received a letter from her husband where Serhiy Tsyhipa wrote that he had been moved to the Ryazan region.

"He has arrived at his destination – Skopin, Ryazan region. He also sends his regards to everyone who cares about his fate," his wife said.

Serhiy Tsyhipa is a public activist based in Nova Kakhovka (Kherson oblast) and runs the NGO "Kahovka Bridgehead"; he is a volunteer, former journalist and an ATO veteran.

Since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion, he has been doing volunteer work, attending rallies in support of Ukraine and reporting on the occupiers' actions in the South.

The Russians kidnapped the journalist on March 12, 2022, when he was on his way to Tavriysk with his dog to deliver medicine for his mother-in-law.

On October 6, 2023, the Russia-backed Supreme Court of Crimea sentenced Tsyhipa to 13 years in prison.
