Ombudsperson Lutkovska: Agreement With Russia On Transfer Of 16 Convicts From Crimea To Mainland Ukraine Disrupted

Ukraine's Ombudsperson Valeria Lutkovska says an agreement with the Russian authorities on transfer of 16 Ukrainian convicts from the annexed Crimea to the mainland Ukraine has been disrupted.

Ombudsperson Valeria Lutkovska announced this at an internet conference, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"In the frames of the coordination with the Russian Ombudsperson we have agreed that convicts who were in prisons in Crimea in March 2014 and have expressed their wish should be transferred to penitentiary facilities in Kherson and Mykolaiv. We have failed to do this so far," she said.

Ombudsperson Lutkovska voiced hope that the agreement would be fulfilled.

She noted that the agreement concerned 16 convicts.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, 34 convicts from the Russia-annexed Crimea requested Ombudsperson Valeria Lutkovska to facilitate their transfer to the mainland Ukraine.

The office of Ombudsperson Lutkovska expected that Russia would transfer 17 convicts from Crimea to the mainland Ukraine in September 2016.
