Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry expressed indignation on the decision of Russia’s Supreme Court not to transfer the cases of Ukrainian citizens Oleh Sentsov and Alexander Kolchenko and their cassational appeal for reconsideration. The foreign policy department reported this.

"We see this decision as not only a deprivation of their rights for a fair consideration of their case in the Supreme Court, but also as a reaffirmation of the political order in this case and the compromise of Russia’s judicial system as an independent branch of the government", reads the message.

Thus, Ukraine urged Russia to immediately stop "the cynical violation of the rights of our compatriots, and set them free to return to Ukraine".
