Oleg Orlov, Memorial Human Rights Centre: “I express my sincere gratitude to all those who supported me throughout these difficult nine months...”

Dear Friends, Colleagues!

This last Tuesday the court acquitted me on charges of slandering Ramzan Kadyrov.

I express my sincere gratitude to all those who supported me throughout these difficult nine months while the trial was in progress – to all those who were concerned about me, phoned, wrote letters, signed statements of support, came to the sessions of the court, wrote and spoke about the trial in the press, on the radio and television.

This is a victory for justice. This is a victory for all of us!

Thank you.

Oleg Orlov
