On Sunday, October 2, in St. Petersburg (RF), at the age of 82, the scientist and sailor Valery Mitko died, who was accused of treason. This was reported on the Telegram channel by the First Department, an open community of lawyers and human rights activists, whose lawyers defended Mitko.

The President of the Arctic Academy of Sciences was accused of treason in 2018. According to the FSB, the scientist received a spy assignment in 2018 and handed over materials that contained state secrets to the Chinese special services.

Lawyers have repeatedly emphasized that Mitko gave open lectures at Dalian University (China) during the specified time period and was not involved in espionage activities.

But the scientist was arrested anyway.

In early 2020 years, he was forbidden even to walk near the house. Mitko was forced to stay in his apartment, isolated from the outside world around the clock.

His health began to deteriorate. Mitko was often hospitalized. According to human rights activists, after the last hospitalization, the scientist could not walk on his own. At the same time, he had to take care of his elderly wife, who also did not move anymore.

Lawyers for the deceased scientist emphasized that Mitko became another victim of the Russian repressive system. A world-famous scientist died accused of a grave crime he did not commit.

Who is Valery Mitko

Mitko was born in Chernihiv. After graduating from school, he entered the Higher Naval School of Radio Electronics in Leningrad (in modern St. Petersburg, – ed.).

The scope of his scientific interests is hydroacoustics. He also studied painting.

Mitko is a corresponding member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Engineering, academician of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences, president of the regional public organization “Arctic Public Academy of Sciences of St. Petersburg”.

Focus also wrote that the FSB was accused of organizing a terrorist attack by a Ukrainian who died in the spring. The secret service assured that Russian neo-Nazis acted under the control of Ukrainians, and named the Azov fighter who died in March.
