The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine sent a note to the Russian Federation demanding to explain the detention of Ukrainian Oleksandr Steshenko. This was reported by the press secretary of the Foreign Ministry Mariana Betsa on Twitter.
"In connection with the detention of Oleksandr Steshenko at the entry to the occupied Crimea, we sent a note to the Russian Federation with a request to inform the reasons for the detention and his location," she wrote.
As it was reported earlier, at the administrative border with the occupied Crimea, the Russian law enforcers detained Kharkiv resident Oleksandr Steshenko.
The last time Oleksandr got in touch with his mother on the morning of April 11. He called her and said that the "border guards" of the Russian Federation at Chongar doubted his similarity with the photo in his passport.
There was information that the taxi driver waited for him at the border about 4 hours, after the driver came out, the law enforcer of the Russian Federation took things out of the car and told him not to wait.
Currently, Steshenko's location is not known, and the FSB refutes having detained him.
