MOSCOW, July 4. /TASS/. The Russian side has sent the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow an inquiry about Russian citizens staying at detention centers in Ukraine, Russia’s Foreign Ministry Envoy for Human Rights, Democracy and the Supremacy of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Monday.
"We have sent the Ukrainian embassy in Moscow a note with an inquiry about Russian citizens at Ukrainian pre-trial detention centers and other imprisonment places," the diplomat wrote in his Twitter microblog.
The Russian Foreign Ministry envoy earlier told TASS that over 100 Russians were being held in Ukrainian prisons and pre-trial detention centers, adding this statistics was not full.
According to Dolgov, Kiev is not informing timely about the arrests of Russian citizens and, therefore, "is breaching the 1993 bilateral Consular Convention and the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.".
