Ukraine's parliamentary ombudsman Lyudmyla Denisova asks UN and OSCE to assist with legal protection for Ukrainian citizens detained in Belarus. The official posted that on Facebook.

"I urge UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michele Bachelet, President of the International Committee of the Red Cross Peter Maurer, OSCE leader Edi Rama, and other international human rights to elaborate in provision of legal assistance for the detained citizens of Ukraine", reads the message. 

Lyudmyla Denisova also turned to human rights protection bodies in this country, asking to provide legal assistance for Ukrainian volunteers Yevhen Vasyliev and Kostyantyn Reutsky, as well as another two citizens of Ukraine.
