In a statement issued on January 31st the Communist Party of Ukraine appeals to Communist and Workers' Parties to express their support with Oleg Khorzan, Communist Party leader in the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic, who has been illegally detained and imprisoned by the authorities.
The full statement of the Communist Party of Ukraine, in english and russian, is the following:
On June 6, 2018, the leader of the Transnistrian opposition, deputy of the Supreme Council Oleg Olegovich Khorzhan was illegally detained in the Transnistrian Moldavian Republic and imprisoned. The charge against him during the trial was disproved on all counts. However, Oleg Khorzhan was sentenced to four and a half years in prison. The true reason for what happened is that the ruling regime in Transnistria decided to get rid of the objectionable deputy, popular politician, and opposition leader.
