US citizen Suedi Murekezi was charged in the Donetsk People’s Republic with inciting ethnic hatred. This was announced by the lawyer of the American Sergei Litvishko.
The lawyer specified that his client was accused of participating in pro-Ukrainian and anti-Russian rallies in Kherson. According to Litvishko, Murekezi denies his guilt, as he allegedly happened to be at these actions by accident.
“I left the house for the first time, approached the rally, stood for a few minutes and left. Another time I went to the store for groceries, ”the lawyer explained.
Suedi Murekezi was detained in Kherson, after which he was sent to the DPR. Thus, a 35-year-old American became the third US citizen who was captured in the Donbass.
