“Ukrainian officials are keeping contact with relatives and lawyers of the detained citizens. Thus, they will be ready to file the respective petition and send it to Russia – as soon as the sentence takes effect”, Ukraine’s Justice Minister said.

On May 19, the jury of the Supreme Court of Chechnya (Russia) found Ukrainian citizens Mykola Karpyuk and Stanislav Klykh guilty of military actions against Russian federal troops during Chechen war in winter 1994-1995. The prosecutors offered the court to send them to jail for 22.5 and 22 years respectively.
