The leader of Kharkov communists in Ukraine - Alla Aleksandrovska (68) - remains imprisoned, despite her health problems.


The court prolonged her conviction again. An official reason is the same as in many other Ukrainian political cases: a prosecutor’s witness is missing. It’s a traditional practice in Ukrainian political cases: to delay the court hearings for years (under the pretext of missing prosecutor’s witness) and hold political opponents convicted.
