'I received the official information from the Ukrainian consul in Moscow Albert Chernyakov. According to him, the Ukrainian diplomats visited six sailors in Lefortovo: Oleg Melnychuk, Mykhaylo Vlasyuk, Viktor Bespalchenko, Volodymyr Tereshchenko, Yevgen Semydotsky and Volodymyr Lysovy,' the message says.
According to the consul, the condition of the sailors is satisfactory, their mood is optimistic, and they hope to return home soon. They said that they have not contacted the relatives yet, but they would definitely call them soon.
The Ukrainians are placed in double cells with TV sets and fridges; they can use a library, too. They also have warm clothes and shoes, as well as the meals that volunteers sent them.
Besides, Ukraine’s Embassy provided some financial aid for every POW by sending money to their personal accounts.
