Foreign Ministry Protests Against Transfers Of Ukrainian Convicts From Crimea To Russia

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has expressed its protest against illegal transfers of Ukrainian convicts, who were sentenced by Ukrainian courts and served their sentences in Crimea, from the territory of the Ukrainian peninsular to Russia.

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

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that Russia continues to neglect lawful demands of the Ukrainian side and rights of Ukrainian citizens who were sentenced by Ukrainian courts and served their sentences on the territory of the peninsular before the occupation of Crimea.

In particular, verdicts of Ukrainian courts are being reconsidered and Ukrainian convicts are being transferred to Russia.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs notes that the international humanitarian law prohibits an occupier country to forcibly move citizens from the occupied territories to the territory of the occupier country.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs demands that the Russian authorities immediately transfer Ukrainian convicts to the territory of Ukraine with their files and criminal cases.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, 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.
