The Russian side suggests making the visit to Omsk on June 16.

"The question of the visit to Sentsov remains open. We are insisting on a trip to Salekhard where Oleh is as soon as possible and Russia suggests a possible date of the visit after June 22. It does not suit us at all! We will continue to insist on going there within days," reads the statement.

Ombudsperson Denisova says work is underway to visit Ukrainian journalist Roman Suschenko in the Lefortovo remand prison and Mykola Karpiuk in Vladimir.

Negotiations on the issue continue.
