As reported on the Agency’s website on Wednesday evening, November 28, the corresponding note of protest was sent to the foreign Ministry a day earlier.

“The Russian side updated the categorical demand for the immediate release of captured citizens of Ukraine and to ensure their safe return home”, – said in a statement the foreign Ministry of Ukraine.

Ukrainian diplomats say that the military were captured “in the territorial waters and exclusive economic zone of our country in the Black sea”.

The Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine once again demanded urgently and in full Russia ensure all the legitimate rights of the occupied Ukrainian citizens, envisaged by the Geneva Convention of 12 August 1949 on the treatment of prisoners of war, and access to them by representatives of the International Committee of the red cross.

Today it became known that the so-called “court” in Simferopol arrested all the Ukrainian seamen for two months – until 25 January 2018.
