    Russia-controlled court in Crimea takes 5 minutes to jail Ukrainian academic for 5 years

    A court in Russian-occupied Crimea has sentenced internationally-known academic Dmytro Shtyblikov to five years’ maximum security imprisonment on wildly implausible ‘sabotage’ charges.

    Putin ‘supports’ large-scale exchange of hostages held in Donbas
