Nothing is going right with Russia’s attempt to concoct a Ukrainian Crimea saboteur plot and trial. First it reports events that did not take place, then the FSB’s ‘confessions’ are retracted with three of the four men arrested confirming that they were obtained through torture. Now not a single DNA trace or fingerprint has been found to link Yevhen Panov and Andriy Zakhtei with the weapons, etc. allegedly concealed in a cemetery near the Armyansk crossing between Crimea and mainland Ukraine. Only the Russian Investigative Committee is working in tandem with the FSB. It has refused to investigate the clear evidence backing Panov’s complaints of torture, despite the initial intervention of the European Court of Human Rights.
