We remind you that, in 2022, Victor Plešcanov was sentenced to prison in the Transnistrian region for "inciting extremism" after he wrote on Facebook "Glory to Ukraine! Death to the Moldovan Dnestrian Republic ". The activist was sentenced to 3 years and 2 months in prison. He was detained in penitentiary no. 3 from Tiraspol.
