The activist took part in the blockade of trade between mainland Ukraine and Russian-annexed Crimea initiated by several Ukrainian civil society groups in 2015-2016, Russian state news agency TASS reported. The blockade was a protest against Russia's annexation of Crimea and political repressions on the peninsula. The activist was allegedly a security guard of Lenur Islyamov, one of the organizers of the blockade, according to TASS. He has been charged by the occupation authorities with being a member of an "unlawful armed group."
