KYIV (QHA) -

Ten people in Crimea are targeted in the "Ukrainian saboteurs" case. Ukrainian citizens were deprived of liberty due to violation of fundamental human rights and political reasons, a human rights activist, coordinator of the Crimean human rights group Olga Skrypnyk said at a press conference "The cases of Crimean saboteurs: illegal methods of investigation," according to QHA correspondent.

“The case of "saboteurs" has acquired a mass character, as the prosecution is carried out not against one person but a group of individuals. Violation of the right to a fair trial, violation of the prohibition of torture, violation of rights of the defense - all this proves that all these people are political prisoners. There is a political motive, we all see the way this information is presented.

These people should be released. We consider them political prisoners, and, accordingly, shall apply to international organizations,” she said.
