According to the Article 54 part 10 and part 11 of the second part of Ukrainian SSR Criminal Code he was sentenced to 8 years of corrective labour camps with confiscation of property.
From 1953 to 1956 Rostyslav Dotsenko was serving his sentence in Volga concentration camps involved in hydroelectric construction. In the spring of 1955, a dozen of political prisoners were convicted of youthful non-conformism and organized oppositional to ruling Soviet elites as "Group of revolutionary Marxists" Rostyslav Dotsenko was one of the active members of this group as he is the co-author of the program and statutory documents of the group. Communist Party interpreted these documents as "reactionary party of fascistic type" due to the GRM provocateur, the group was discovered in April 1956. In April 1956, its members (A. Sukhodolskyi, R. Dotsenko, J. Mazur, D. Pysarev, D. Slobodyan, V. Cherepanov, A. Stasishkis, A. Myroshnichenko, A. Ahbalov and others) were arrested and trialled in September of the same year.

Rostyslav Dotsenko refers to those times as "From Mordovian cannabis, unexpectedly I entered the Sixtiers and politics in the Soviet Union in the second half of 1950) where gladly acquainted with Ivan Svitlychny Dziuba, Lina Kostenko, Alla Horska and many, many others outstanding personalities of those revival years."

In the early 1970s, the "Dnipro" publishing house gathered a group of writers led by Ivan Dziuba, who worked with Mykola Lukash and Hryhoriy Kochur – recent prisoners of the Soviet concentration camps. Rostyslav Dotsenko was threatened with arrest again. After refusing to cooperate with the KGB he was fired from his job in publishing house and forbidden to publish.
