According to Polozov, the investigators notified Grytsenko and his lawyers about the end of the investigative actions in accordance with the Criminal Procedure Code of Russia. The lawyer noted that investigation ends officially and POW sailors along with their advocates pass to the familiarizing with the materials of the case.
“It is expected that during the next two weeks, the investigation will notify other POWs and their lawyers about the end of the investigative actions,” he added.
Moreover, the lawyer said that on July 17, the trial will take place on the extension of the arrest of the Ukrainian sailors. The beginning of the court’s session is planned for 9:30 a.m.
Earlier it was reported that Russian prosecution pressed final charges against 24 Ukrainian sailors illegally held in the Russian jail.
We recall, on November 25, 2018, Russian border guards seized the Ukrainian Yana Kapu raid tug and small armored artillery boats Berdyansk and Nikopol of the Naval Forces of Ukraine in the Kerch Strait area, using weapons.
As a result of the incident, 24 Ukrainian sailors were detained and arrested. They were transported from Crimea to the Moscow Lefortovo detention facility. In addition, three Ukrainian sailors wounded during the shelling by the Russians were transferred to the Prison Hospital.
