The three wounded Ukrainian sailors have been moved from one remand centre in Moscow to another one. They are now at Lefortovo prison, lawyer Nikolai Polozov said.

Andriy Eider, Vasyl Soroka and Andriy Artemenko were brought there from the medical unit of Matrosskaya Tishina remand centre.

As is known, 24 Ukrainian sailors were captured during the Russian naval attack in the Kerch Strait in the Sea of Azov, which took place in November. The Ukrainians were taken to Russia and charged with illegal crossing of the Russian state border.
