Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova had the meeting Arif Virani, the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Canadian Heritage during which she offered to consider the possibility of the imposing of the additional restrictions against the allies of Russia's President Vladimir Putin by Canada for the release of the Ukrainian prisoners. Denisova reported this on Facebook.

"I invited Canada to join to the entire society that constantly reminds the president of Russia about the necessity to return our citizens to the relatives. It is possible to do this through the additional restrictions against his allies and the constant appeals to him. Mister Virani promised to inform the leadership of the government of Canada as according to him, it is very important for the human rights all over the world," Denisova said.

Also, the sides discussed the conditions of the detention of Ukrainian movie maker Oleg Sentsov and other political prisoners in the Russian prisons.

"I noted that Russia did not answer any of our appeals, in which we sent the lists of the prisoners and schedules of their transfer. I reported that 22 Russian prisoners detained in Ukraine appealed to the Russian president with the request to exchange them for the Ukrainians," she said.
