KIEV, September 29. /TASS/. Kiev’s Goloseevsky court has sent the case of Russians Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeny Yerofeev to the Appeals Court, a TASS correspondent reported from the site on Tuesday.
The court has also extended the arrest of the two Russian citizens until November 21.
Russians Alexander Alexandrov and Yevgeny Yerofeyev were captured by Ukraine’s forces in mid-May in the Luhansk region, in eastern Ukraine. After the detention, the Russians underwent serious surgery that demands long-time recovery and systematic medical supervision.
Kiev claims the detainees allegedly were Russian servicemen. Russia’s Defense Ministry later said the Russians "were not active servicemen of Russia’s Armed Forces at the moment when they were detained on May 17."
Ukraine’s chief military prosecutor’s office demands that Russian nationals should be jailed for life.
The court of Kiev’s Shevchenkovsky district arrested Alexandrov and Yerofeyev on May 22.
