“People face horrible things in prison. It hurts to listen how Yuriy and Hennadiy (Soloshenko and Afanasyev, - 112 International) tell us that they weren’t allowed to see consul. Everyday, they told them Ukraine doesn’t fight for them. Keys to all prison cells in Russia are in the Kremlin. And we need international solidarity so that the issue of release of POWs and prisoners of war would become the priority for the Normandy format. The humanitarian issues must be of priority, because it’s about human rights”, Gherashchenko said as quoted by Radio Liberty.
