We recall that an agreement on the visit of the Russian ombudsman to Ukraine was reached today during a telephone conversation between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Earlier doctors examined Ukrainian director and political prisoner Oleg Sentsov who is now in Russian prison. This was reported by the press service of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN).
