NATO welcomed returning of the political prisoners from Russia to Ukraine who arrived within the captives interchange between Kyiv and Moscow on September 7. NATO’s Spokesperson Oana Lungescu said this in her statement. The document is published on the official website of the North Atlantic Alliance.
"We welcome that the Ukrainian sailors seized by Russia last November are finally back home, as well as the film-maker Oleg Sentsov. This is a step in the right direction," the press secretary of the Alliance said.
It is noted that Lungescu continues to call on Russia to fulfill all its obligations under the Minsk Agreements, including the release of all prisoners.
Oana Lungescu also emphasized the importance of establishing the truth and responsibility to the downing of the MH17 flight, according to the United Nations Security Council No. 2166.
