The 'law enforcement' agencies of the occupied Crimea released Viktor Novytsky, the Ukrainian citizens and the captain of YAMK-0041 vessel. He was in detention since May 2018; now, local 'court' changed the restriction measure from detention to the restriction of travel order.
According to Lyudmyla Lubina, the 'Ombudswoman' of the annexed peninsula, Novytsky was released at about 8 p.m. Thursday. Interfax news agency quoted her as saying.
Another two Ukrainian fishermen signed the restriction of travel order, as the Russian authorities charged them with the illegal border crossing.
