The well-known religious scholar Igor Kozlovsky, imprisoned by pro-Russian militants for over a year, was sent to Horlivka colony, his nephew Denis Kozlovsky reported, according to Ukrinform.
“We became aware that he was transferred to the Nikitovskaya penal colony No. 87 to execute his sentence”.
Kozlovsky's nephew also noted that earlier the prisoner was in the remand center in the occupied Donetsk.
Detention conditions are not yet known to Kozlovsky’s relative. But according to preliminary information, he is quarantined now - the prisoner undergoes a medical examination and expects cell allocation.
Earlier QHA reported that ORDLO militants promised Kozlovsky to be included to the exchange lists when the final list is agreed.
Reference: An outstanding Ukrainian historian and religious scholar Igor Kozlovsky was captured by the militants of the so-called “Donetsk People's Republic” on January 27, 2016. The scholar was taken prisoner in the middle in the daytime in the center of the city and put to the cellars of the “Ministry of State Security of the Donetsk People's Republic.” Representatives of the so-called “DPR” authorities took the keys from the man and searched his apartment.
Immediately after the arrest of the historian, according to Igor’s wife Valentina Kozlovska, her husband was accused of “improper correspondence in Facebook.” His nephew Denis Kozlovsky says that the actual reason for the capture is still a mystery.
