All detained Ukrainian sailors to stay in custody in Russia until April 24

21:14, 16 January 2019

Moscow's Lefortovo court has extended the arrest period for all 24 Ukrainian sailors who suffered the attack of the Russian Navy in the Kerch Strait in November. The lawyers of the Ukrainian servicemen already said they would appeal against the decision.

 As we reported before, some of the detainees refused to testify, only calling their names and ranks. The court let them see their relatives briefly.
