MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Kiev disregards Moscow’s request on the number of Russians held in Ukraine’s jails, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov said on Thursday.
"Ukraine has not so far given an answer to our diplomatic note that had a request to provide data on the Russians who are in detention on Ukraine’s territory, although it is obliged to do this in line with the bilateral consular convention and the Vienna Convention," Dolgov told a meeting of the Committee for public support of citizens of Ukraine’s south-east in the Federation Council.
"We will strive to get this answer," he stressed.
More than 100 political prisoners are in the Kharkov detention facility (northeastern Ukraine) now and over 30 others, including one Russian citizen, are held by Ukraine’s Security Service in that city, the head of the Kharkov community in Russia said at the meeting.
