This was reported that similar incidents related with Russian border transgression cases by Ukrainian servicemen also took place and were successfully settled,” Chairman of the Russian Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights Fedotov said in a letter which was posted on the official website of the council.
Fedotov asked Lutkovskaya “to assist...to settle this incident as quickly as possible and to return Russian servicemen to the homeland.”
He also assured her that the presidential rights council was ready “for further co-operation on all human rights issues.”
