On September 7, 2019, an exchange of political prisoners between Russia and Ukraine took place, allowing prisoners to be freed after spending months and years of their lives in concrete jail boxes and regime barracks due to the geopolitical games of garbage and politicians, who, according to a long statist tradition, set human lives as a bargaining chip.

Among those released was our comrade, anarchist Oleksandr Kolchenko, who spoke out against the Russian state during the annexation of Crimea and received 10 years in prison for this.

We sincerely congratulate the comrade who carried all the hardships of the repressive apparatus and unshakably remained his own, preserving ideas, principles and beliefs.

For liberation!
