MOSCOW, February 04. /ITAR-TASS/. The US authorities bear full responsibility for the life and health of Russian pilot Konstantin Yaroshenko, sentenced to a jail term in the United States, Russian Foreign Ministry ombudsman for human rights, Konstantin Dolgov, said at a meeting with the minister councilor of the US Embassy to Russia on Monday.
“On Monday, Minister Counselor of the US Embassy in Moscow Howard Solomon was summoned to the Foreign Ministry, where Konstantin Dolgov expressed concern over refusal of the US side to hand over Yaroshenko, who was sentenced by a court in New York, to Russia under the 1983 Convention of the Council of Europe,” Russian Foreign Ministry sources said on Tuesday.“The American authorities bear the full brunt of responsibility for the life and health of the Russian national,” they said. Dolgov drew American diplomat’s attention to a need to have humane jail conditions ensured for Yaroshenko, including medical treatment he was entitled to under international standards.
“We will continue seeking the return of Konstantin Yaroshenko and other Russian citizens finding themselves in a similar situation,” the ministry said.
