In his appeal to the court, Vyacheslav Datsik complained about the tightness of the cells and the tobacco smoke that he had to endure from the smoking cellmates.⁠

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) ordered Russia to pay Vyacheslav Datsik, known by the nickname Ryzhy Tarzan, €5000. The nationalist appealed to the court with a complaint about the conditions of detention in a Russian prison. In particular, Datsik complained about the tightness of the cameras - 1.9 square meters per person, as well as tobacco smoke, which he is forced to endure from smoking cellmates, although he himself does not smoke. Fontanka.ru reported this, citing lawyer Andrey Fedorkov.

Recall that Vyacheslav Datsik was serving his sentence in the correctional colony No. 31 in Krasnoyarsk from November 2013 to March 2016 in the case of an attack on a mobile communication salon. In October 2014, Datsik filed a complaint with the ECHR on the conditions of detention. He managed to prove in court that all requests to transfer him to another cell were ignored. Now Russia is obliged to transfer €5 thousand at the rate effective on the date of payment within three months. For each day of delay, interest will be charged. According to the current exchange rate, Datsik would have received 320 thousand rubles.

Now Ryzhy Tarzan is in the Kresty investigative isolator in the case of an attack on prostitutes and a hotel in St. Petersburg in May 2016. In SIZO he will stay at least until November.

Earlier, Datsik sent a statement to the Prosecutor's Office complaining about the actions of Rosgvardia's employees.
