Foreign Ministry Protests As Consuls Not Allowed To Visit Ukrainian Panov Arrested By Russian Authorities

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has expressed its protest as Ukrainian consuls were not allowed to visit Ukrainian citizen Yevhen Panov arrested by the FSB of the Russian Federation allegedly for preparing terror attacks in the Russia-annexed Crimea.

The press service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine gave the position in a statement, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to the statement, a lawyer of Yevhen Panov says his client was forced to write a statement to refuse from protection of his interests by consular officials of Ukraine. Thus, the Russian authorities have deprived Panov a right to consular protection.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs demands that the Russian authorities provide observation of Panov's rights and immediately allow consular officials of Ukraine to visit Panov in compliance with international commitments of Russia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine urges the international community, international human rights organizations to continue the political and diplomatic pressure on Russia to facilitate release of Ukrainian citizens illegally held prisoners in Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, the Kyivskyi District Court of Simferopol on August 11 warranted arrest of citizen of Ukraine Yevhen Panov who was detained on suspicion of preparing terror attacks in Crimea for 60 days.

The Federal Security Service of Russia has made public a video showing Panov's interrogation.
