Valeriy Moskalenko was Detained since 2 August 2018 in Khabarovsk as a result of searches in at least four homes of peaceful citizens. He was placed in a detention centre and charged under Article 282.2(2) of the Russian Criminal Code — “participation in the activity of an extremist organization”. What is really known about this man?
Valeriy Moskalenko was born in Khabarovsk in 1967. He is an assistant locomotive operator. He felt an acute need for justice ever since childhood, which is why at an older age he began to seek God. Since the early 1990s faith in God has become a prominent part of his life.
Valeriy loves to travel, listen to music and even plays the trumpet himself. His many friends say that he is kind-hearted and always ready to help. Before being placed in the detention centre, Valeriy lived with his elderly mother and cared for her on a daily basis, which she sorely needs. When he was arrested she became ill, an ambulance had to be called. Everyone who knows Valeriy is shocked that he wound up behind bars on absurd charges.
