Envoys for human rights Lyudmyla Denisova (Ukraine) and Tatyana Moskalkova (Russia) negotiated over the most burning issues of political prisoners in these respective countries. That, in particular, included the Ukrainian sailors arrested after the attack on Ukrainian Navy vessels in the Kerch Strait.
According to the Ukrainian official, Moskalkova promised she would check the information about Crimean Tatar Edem Bekirov not getting the necessary medical assistance.
When speaking about the current condition of Ukrainian Pavlo Gryb, Denisova asked her counterpart to see to it that Gryb has an urgent surgery.
'I noted that Volodymyr Dudka needed medical aid and the due detention conditions. Moskalkova promised to re-check the conditions and health conditions of his', Denisova wrote on Facebook.
The Russian official also said that the wounded Ukrainian sailors Andriy Eider and Andriy Artemenko are being treated after the examination took place; the third wounded seaman Vasyl Soroka is undergoing the examination and expects a further surgery.
'We also discussed options of the exchange. I asked Moskalkova to pass the information to the respective authorities so that 25-on-25 exchange could be discussed', Denisova wrote.
Previously, Moskalkova complained to her UN counterpart, saying Ukraine allegedly violated the rights of residents of Crimea.
