KYIV (QHA) -

The Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (APC) collects data about the people involved in the arrest of Ukrainian Gennady Afanasiev in Crimea. Personal sanctions against them could be introduced in future, a former political prisoner Gennady Afanasiev said at a press conference in Kyiv.

“My personal case has been filed in the ARC Prosecutor's Office; we carry out the examination of signatures of those who took part in this (arrest - Ed.). The judges, who made the decision, who call themselves Russian judges, have Ukrainian certificates, and they have Ukrainian stamps. We requested the SBU to identify persons having sided with the invaders, to confirm their identity,” he said.

Afanasiev also noted that the Prosecutor's Office already has photos of the FSB investigators involved in the "Sentsov-Kol'chenko case."

Gennady Afanasiev also expressed the hope that the Canadian government will soon pass a law on the "Magnitstky list," with entering the names of Russian citizens involved in human rights violations in the occupied Crimea.
