An activist arrested in Kazakhstan at the request of the Russian Federation has been released from pre-trial detention center


19-year-old Russian opposition activist Denis Kozak, one of the first detained in Kazakhstan under Russia’s extradition request, has been released from custody. reports the “Ark” organization, which helps emigrants who condemn military aggression against Ukraine.

Kozak was arrested in Kazakhstan in March last year. Russian authorities charged him with “justifying terrorism” for commenting on the Internet about student Mikhail Zhlobitsky, who in 2018 committed a suicide bombing in the building of the FSB administration in the Arkhangelsk region.

The Kovcheg organization notes that “Kozak’s case was extremely complex,” since “under terrorist articles it is quite difficult to explain to other countries the political motivation of the case and law enforcement practice.” However, it was successful, and the activist has now reportedly received a humanitarian visa and a temporary travel document from a European country.
