After the illegal elections, I began to actively participate in rallies. One day, when I was returning home, I torn down the flag, for which I was prosecuted under Article 370. After that there was a trial. I was sent to the open-type correctional facility in Ginovichi for one year.
There were only two jobs for political prisoners here — garbage recycling and a collective farm. They sent me to work in recycling. It is difficult to live and work in such conditions. When they detained me, they beat me up, because they consider this flag sacred. There is no prejudice in the TSI, they treat me like everyone else.
