Ombudsmen of Ukraine and Russia are in talks on the issue of Ukrainian prisoners in the Crimea.

Commissioner for human Verkhovna Rada Valeria Lutkovska next year will visit convicted Ukrainian citizens held in correctional colonies in Simferopol. This was reported to Interfax, the Russian Ombudsman Tatyana Moskalkova.

“Lutkovska was granted the right to visit in the IR-1 and IR-2 in Simferopol convicted citizens of Ukraine, but because it took a long time visit in the detention center, agreed to her visit next year these citizens,” she said.

Moskalkova expressed hope that the Ukrainian side, in turn, will execute the agreement on the visits of citizens of Russia, who are in the colonies in Ukraine.

Consideration of moving prisoners citizens of Ukraine who are in correctional colonies in the Crimea, is in the nearest plans of the two commissioners, said the Russian Ombudsman.

“To do this, some work has been done, collected the necessary documents. And the Russian foreign Ministry has requested the Ministry of foreign Affairs of Ukraine confirming their Ukrainian citizenship, but we also need to obtain confirmation that the Ukrainian side is ready to accept further punishment of these citizens on the territory of Ukraine. They are now 17 people,” – said Moskalkova.

She stressed that, in the opinion of the ombudsmen of the two countries, commissioners for human rights “should work, as doctors without borders.”

Lutkovska: Euroamusement not allowed to work in Russia

Earlier it was reported that after the annexation of Crimea by Russia in local prisons remained Ukrainian prisoners.

Experts note that so far the transfer of prisoners was hampered by the fact that in official documents the Crimea was defined as “Russian territory”, with which Ukraine can not agree.
