Pavlo Klimkin, the Foreign Minister of Ukraine appealed to the countries of the EU and G7 with a request to send their representatives to the court session on the case of Pavlo Gryb, the Ukrainian citizen who is detained at the pretrial detention center in Krasnodar. He reported this at Twitter.
'The world should see the Russian pseudo-justice at work', Klimkin wrote.
The minister also demanded from Russia to provide the Ukrainian doctors to Gryb.
Earlier it was reported that the court session will take place through the video conference and Pavlo Gryb will not be presented at the hearing of his case.
As it was reported earlier, 19-years old Pavlo Gryb got lost in Belarus on August 24. The young man was later found at a prison in Krasnodar, Russia. He told a Russian lawyer that he had been kidnapped in Belarus and brought to Russia, where he is accused under Article 205.1 of Criminal Code of Russia (Abetting of the terrorist activities). The Ukrainian's lawyer said that Gryb was arrested in Russia in absentia.
The Russian authorities accused Pavlo Gryb of the preparation of the terrorist attack at the school. The period of investigation on Pavlo Gryb case was prolonged until January 2018 on October 18 and the representative of the investigation appealed to the court with a request to prolong the arrest of Gryb until January 4, 2018.
Earlier the ECHR demanded from Russia the statement on Pavlo Gryb's health. Also, he offered to send his doctors to the pretrial detention center and the Ukrainian side sent the doctors to him on October 11 without waiting for a permission of Russia. However, the Russian side did not let them see Gryb.
