Andrei Nekrasov is a Russian opposition activist, blogger and journalist who has been in jail in Nicosia, Cyprus, since 13 July following an extradition request from Russia.

If the system of justice in your country approves this extradition request, he could face up to 15 years in prison on the basis of two legal cases that have apparently been manufactured. The study of the extradition request will begin on August 13.

I am an activist of the Russie-Libertés Association. A bit over a year I was also arrested in Bulgaria facing a risk of being extradited to Russia and standing an unfair trial. Thanks to thousands of people who were mobilised by Change.org I was finally released. Now living in my home country of France I cherish my freedom more than ever. When Andrei began his hunger strike to protest against his imprisonment, I imagined how he felt as I had lived through it myself - all that confusion, misunderstanding and fear that now overwhelm him even though he knows he is not guilty.

I therefore kindly ask you - as you did it for me before - to urgently sign this petition that will be submitted to the Cypriot authorities requesting Andrei’s immediate release and dismissal of the Russian extradition request. Thank you.
