“Andrei Mironov was a member of the Memorial society. But he was not
on the society’s payroll. He was an independent rights campaigner,”
Roginsky said.

“Andrei was arrested in the Gorbachev era and sentenced to four years
in a camp and three years of exile in 1986 for anti-Soviet propaganda,
but he was released relatively soon, in 1987, when political prisoners
were freed,” Roginsky said.

Mironov was involved continuously in Memorial’s activities, but mostly worked outside Memorial, he said.
