Yaroslav Prytulenko has been released from detention and all charges against him have been dropped. 

On 24 January the Shevchenkivskiy District Court in Kyiv released Yaroslav Prytulenko and dropped all charges against him. 

Amnesty International will continue to urge the authorities to open an investigation into his and others’ allegations of abusive and indiscriminate use of force by law enforcement officers against protesters in Kyiv during demonstrations that began in November 2013 and have continued since, and to call for the perpetrators to be brought to justice. 

No further action is currently required from the Urgent Action Network.
