NOVOSIBIRSK, May 26. /TASS/. Russia’s human rights commissioner Tatyana Moskalkova has expressed readiness to continue working on releasing Russian citizens who are held in Ukrainian prisons.
"If there are specific facts of rights violations, we will react. If there are possibilities to release Russian citizens who are in prisons in Ukraine, we will take all measures to free them," Moskalkova told reporters on Thursday.
Moskalkova has also asked Ukraine’s human rights commissioner about the citizens of the country who are still held in Crimea and who "are not brought back by their motherland."
"They committed crimes as Ukrainian citizens on the former territory of Ukraine. Now there are no grounds to keep them on the territory of another state," she said, adding that Kiev has not reacted so far.
"It is very important for us to send them back home. This is an issue of humanism, socialization and just law from the point of view of custody of convicts," Moskalkova added.
