Yevsyukov’s Parents Sue

The parents of Denis Yevsyukov, the police officer serving a life sentence for going on a Moscow shooting rampage in April 2009, have sued the Federal Prison Service in an attempt to move their son to a prison near Moscow, Interfax reported Tuesday.

Yevsyukov is incarcerated in the Arctic Yamal-Nenets autonomous district, but his parents want him relocated closer to home so relatives could maintain contact with him, the report said.

Hearings into the lawsuit are to start Monday. A Federal Prison Service spokesman said Tuesday that Yevsyukov’s placement in the Arctic colony violated no rules.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
