MOSCOW, February 11. /TASS/. Amnesty International has declared Ruslan Kotsaba, a Ukrainian journalist arrested by Ukraine’s security services, a prisoner of conscience, the organization said on Wednesday.
"There are different attitudes to Ruslan Kotsaba’s position. However, by arresting him for expressing his civil position, the Ukrainian authorities have violated the fundamental human right to freedom of expression, which Ukrainians defended on the Maidan," director of Amnesty International in Ukraine Tetiana Mazur said.
Amnesty International says it considers Kotsaba to be a prisoner of conscience and calls on the Ukrainian authorities to free him immediately and without preconditions.
Kotsaba was detained on February 7 after he posted a video where he expresses his negative attitude to the mobilization campaign announced in Ukraine. The journalist was accused of treason and obstructing the military.
