13:18, 7 September 2015


Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee prepared a draft appeal to parliaments of foreign states and international parliamentary assemblies concerning violations of human rights and freedoms and enhanced political persecution by Russia. It was reported by the press service of the Poroshenko’s party.

Russian side is ignoring numerous calls of the international community to stop political persecution. It refused to comply with the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) provisions on the release of hostages and all illegally detained persons.

"Taking into concideration all these facts, Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine has to appeal to the parliaments of foreign states and international parliamentary assemblies with a request to condemn unlawful judicial decisions concerning citizens of Ukraine N.Savchenko, O.Sentsov, and O.Kolchenko," according to the statement.

The document also highlights the justification of personal sanctions in order to release illegally detained citizens of Ukraine.
