Ukraine has provided the list of all political prisoners detained in the Russian prisons to Turkey as the response to the request of President Recep Erdogan. Mustafa Dzhemilev, the leader of the Crimean Tatars claimed this as Hromadske reported.
"We have passed it, but I cannot tell the exact date. It was about a week ago," he said.
The list was passed through the Ukrainian Embassy to Turkey.
Dzhemilev also noted that Erdogan did not report during the talk when exactly he plans to talk with Russia's President Vladimir Putin about the release of the Ukrainians.
Earlier Turkish President Recep Tayip Erdogan asked the informal leader of Crimean Tatar people in Ukraine Mustafa Dzhemilev to pass him the list of Ukrainian political prisoners held in Russian penitentiary facilities.
Earlier, Iryna Gerashchenko, the Vice Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, said that the Russian side has rejected the initiative of Ukraine to meet in Minsk for the discussion of the pass of 36 citizens of Russia in the exchange of the Ukrainians.
