Ukrainian Ombudsman Valeriya Lutkovska address a letter to her Russian counterpart Tatiana Moskalkova requesting the information on the place where the detained Hennadiy Lymeshko is being kept. Valeriya Lutkovska wrote that on her Facebook page.
“In her letter Valeriya Lutkovska is asking her Russian counterpart to inform the place of detention of Hennadiy Lymeshko, to order to check the provision of his procedural rights, specifically the right of defense, and to help to provide him medical assistance if necessary, and to assist in providing effective investigation of the fact of possible torturing,” reads the message.
Ukraine’s Defense Ministry has earlier reported that the Ukrainian citizen Hennadiy Lymeshko, detained in the Crimea and announced to the Ukraine’s Security Service officer by the FSB, was a contracted professional soldier and was dismissed in May because of the incompetency.
Russian special forces published video of this detention and interrogation. On camera he named himself as Hennadiy Lymeshko born in 1992 and admitted his guilt in alleged sabotage on the territory of the annexed Crimea.
The Kyiv district court of Symferopol, which is under control of kremlin, arrested Lymeshko for two months until October 13.
Ukrainian Security Service called the FSB messages on Ukrainian “agent” detention to be yet another provocation.
Lymeshko’s mother Rymma Ryzhkova told that her son must have testified before the Russian FSB after being tortured and pressured upon, as it is clearly visible he had his nose broken, and there are abrasions on his cheeks.
