Russia did not forbid to entry on its territory for the released Ukrainian sailors on September 7. Nikolai Polozov, the sailors' lawyer, reported this on his Facebook page replying to the replicable in the Russian mass media statement of another lawyer Dmitriy Dinze about the long life prohibition for entering into the Russian Federation for all 35 released Ukrainians.
"Due to publishing of the misinformation in mass media about entry prohibition to the Russian Federation for the released 24 Ukrainian military sailors we officially report that currently 24 Ukrainian sailors still have the status of accused in the criminal case, which is under investigation of Russia's FSB Investigation Department. Any prohibitions concerning the entry for 24 Ukrainian military sailors were not issued," he noted.
As it was reported earlier, on September 7, all the 24 Ukrainian sailors detained in the Kerch Strait were extradited to Ukraine with the other political prisoners including Oleg Sentsov, Stanislav Klykh, Roman Sushchenko and others.
