MOSCOW, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Moscow is expecting an answer from Washington to its request to allow the Russian delegation to visit air pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, who is serving a 20-year jail term in the United States on drug smuggling attempt charges, Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov has told Itar-Tass.
“We hope that today we will get an answer from the American side,” he said on Monday. “We believe that the situation remains absolutely unchanged in principle. The fact that Yaroshenko will undergo an ultrasound scan today is probably, a step in the right direction. But evidently, this is not enough. He needs a comprehensive medical examination and we try to get permission for our delegation’s visit and assistance from the American side.”
“The Russian delegation is ready to fly to Washington as soon as we get the relevant information from the U.S. authorities,” Dolgov said.
