Ombudswoman of Ukraine Valeriya Lutkovska informed that as of today, over 2.200 Ukrainians are kept in detention in Russia under different criminal procedure status, according to Radio Liberty.

“As of today, over 2.200 Ukrainians are imprisoned in Russia under different criminal procedure status. These are different citizens, both those who are convicted or persecuted for committing just a crime, those who became victims of human trafficking but were convicted as such that committed a crime, and those who were convicted for a crime, but are considered to be politically persecuted by us,” she said.

Ukraine’s ombudswoman believes that the way to releasing political prisoners is through political negotiations. She informed that her negotiations with Russian counterpart Tatyana Moskalkova as to the possibility of holding bilateral visits to those detained in Ukraine and Russia are ongoing.
