Russian occupation authorities are ready to consider the parole of the Ukrainian citizens who are serving sentences in the occupied territories. This was stated by the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatyana Moskalkova, TASS reports.
“Period of parole is coming for some convicts, we have already talked with the FSIN (the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia), whether there are obstacles. They (FSIN) support it, despite the fact that they (the convicts) are the citizens of Ukraine, and this issue is related to collection of a number of documents on parole to consider this matter in court,” said Moskalkova.
According to her, the fate of those convicted by Ukrainian courts before the annexation of Crimea by Russia "is being solved."
Just a reminder: At the June meeting in Minsk, Ukrainian Ombudswoman Valeriya Lutkovska agreed with her Russian counterpart Tatiana Moskalkova to conclude an agreement on the transfer of 18 prisoners convicted by the Ukrainian court before the annexation of Crimea on March 18, 2014 from Simferopol to mainland Ukraine.
