The Ivano-Frankivsk region court of appeal in Ukraine has overturned the verdict against journalist Ruslan Kotsaba and closed his case. This was stated by his lawyer Igor Sulima.

“Criminal proceedings have been closed due to a lack of corpus delicti,” said the lawyer.

Earlier, on May 12th, the Ukrainian court found Kotsaba guilty of committing crimes under part 1 of article 114-1 of the criminal code (obstruction of the activity of the UAF), and wanted to deprive him of his liberty for 3.5 years.
