俄罗斯反对派领袖助手谢维迪诺夫Ruslan Shaveddinov北极服兵役

俄罗斯反对派领袖纳瓦尼(Alexei Navalny)今天表示,他的助手和反贪腐基金会成员谢维迪诺夫被政府强行征召入伍并送至北极圈偏远空军基地服役,这无异是绑架和非法监禁。

路透社报导,反贪腐基金会(FBK)专案经理谢维迪诺夫(Ruslan Shaveddinov)在莫斯科的公寓23日遭破门和断电,手机SIM卡被遥控停用,他则遭到逮捕。

谢维迪诺夫昨晚在新地岛(Novaya Zemlya)一座偏远的军事基地再次露面。那是莫斯科以北约2000公里一个天寒地冻的群岛,位于北极海,岛上有一个防空飞弹部队。

纳瓦尼表示,谢维尼诺夫稍早试图以医疗为由,对征兵提出申诉。他今天藉用别人的手机打了一通电话。

谢维尼诺夫说,他被告知,在服兵役的一年期间不许拥有手机;并说,当局还指派另一名士兵随时跟着他,以监控他的一举一动。

纳瓦尼表示,谢维尼诺夫的律师将对他被征兵提告,并将指控,为他是遭到非法绑架和监禁。

纳瓦尼在社群媒体写道:「入伍服役俨然成了关押百姓的一种方式。」

异议人士将谢维尼诺夫所受待遇比拟为沙俄和前苏联时期将政敌流放到偏远地区的作法。

谢维尼诺夫是纳瓦尼2018年挑战现任俄国总统蒲亭(Vladimir Putin)大位败阵的选战幕僚之一,他也是纳瓦尼线上频道的主持人,并协助管理纳瓦尼基金会专案事务。该基金会专门发布有关国家官员和掌权人士弊案调查消息。

据美国《纽约时报》12月24日报道,当地时间12月23日,俄罗斯著名反对派人士阿列克谢·A·纳瓦尔尼的一位“关键盟友”被俄罗斯联邦国家安全局人员强行带走。12月24日,反对派人士们正打算去警局寻找这位失踪盟友,却得知他已经被送到了位于北极圈内的诺瓦亚·泽姆利亚岛上的防空基地强制服兵役。

据报道,事情发生在俄罗斯首都莫斯科。现年23岁的拉斯兰·沙维迪诺夫(Ruslan Shaveddinov)是俄罗斯著名反对派人士阿列克谢·A·纳瓦尔尼(Aleksei A.Navalny)的同盟和支持者,也是纳瓦尔尼所领导的反腐基金会的项目经理。

当地时间周一(12月23日),沙维迪诺夫在他位于莫斯科的公寓里被当局强行带走。

纳瓦尔尼称,沙维迪诺夫的SIM卡被当局禁用了,因此无法通知同事或者律师。

“看来是普京亲自起草了孤立阿斯兰的计划。”纳瓦尔尼在Twitter上发文。

当晚,反对派的其他几名人士发现沙维迪诺夫的公寓的门被砸碎了,而沙维迪诺夫本人也失踪了,于是迅速发出了警报。

12月24日,反对派的律师和其他活动人士们本打算去警局找沙维迪诺夫,他们甚至还向警方提交了一份失踪人员报告,但却发现沙维迪诺夫已经被送到了3500英里(约合5633公里)之外的诺瓦亚·泽姆利亚(Novaya Zimlya)。

据悉,诺瓦亚·泽姆利亚位于北极圈内,气候严寒,人口稀少,十分荒凉。即使在8月,这里的温度也很少高于50华氏度(即10摄氏度),大约四分之一的土地被永久覆盖冰雪。在苏联时期,诺瓦亚·泽姆利亚是军队的主要核武器试验场。而沙维迪诺夫将在这里的一个防空基地服役。

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny has condemned the forcible conscription of one of his allies to serve at a military base in the Arctic.

Ruslan Shaveddinov was seized at his home in Moscow on Monday and flown 2,000km (1,240 miles) to the remote Novaya Zemlya archipelago.

Mr Navalny accused the authorities of kidnapping the activist who, he said, was exempt from military service.

An army official accused the activist of being a draft-dodger.

Military service of 12 months is compulsory for all Russian men aged 18 to 27, but there are exemptions on medical or other grounds.

Mr Shaveddinov was working as a project manager at Mr Navalny’s Anti-Corruption Foundation (FBK) when he was seized.

What happened to the activist?

On Monday a court in Moscow rejected an appeal made by Mr Shaveddinov against his conscription on medical grounds.

That evening he was taken from his flat and his phone stopped answering, Russian media report. His disappearance was reported by the FBK.

According to Mr Navalny, the missing man managed to borrow a phone on Wednesday and called him to say he had been taken to a base of the 33rd Anti-Aircraft Missile Regiment, whose headquarters is in Rogachovo, Novaya Zemlya.

He said he was under constant supervision, with a man assigned to accompany him everywhere including the toilet.

His own phone was confiscated, Mr Navalny said, even though conscripts are allowed to have phones as long they are not internet-enabled.

Mr Shaveddinov was allowed to walk freely about the barracks but the temperature was minus 27C.

According to Mr Navalny, lawyers for the activist would be challenging his conscription, saying he had been kidnapped and was being detained illegally.

Condemning his ally’s treatment, Mr Navalny insisted Mr Shaveddinov had a documented illness which exempted him from military service.

Col Maxim Loktev, deputy military commissioner for Moscow, told Russian news agency Itar-Tass that the activist had long evaded military service and had been conscripted legally.

He added that his posting had been chosen in line with the results of a medical examination.

Who is Ruslan Shaveddinov?

As well as managing projects, he is a presenter on the Navalny Live YouTube channel.

He worked as press secretary for Mr Navalny’s election staff when the opposition leader tried to stand for president at the election last year, when Vladimir Putin was re-elected.

Mr Navalny, Russia’s most prominent unelected opposition figure, has waged a campaign for more than a decade against corruption and is a sharp critic of Mr Putin’s rule.

The FBK was declared a “foreign agent” by the Russian justice ministry in October, making it subject to more checks by the authorities.
