In Ukraine, a campaign launched in support of Ukrainian sailors captured by Russia
In Ukraine, a campaign was launched in support of the Ukrainian sailors who were captured by the Russian military on November 25, journalist Oleksandra Yefimenko reported on her Facebook page.
She wrote that one of the ways to support the captive Ukrainians is to write a letter.
She noted some restrictions, like the text must be in Russian, not politicized and not contain phrases that Russian censorship will not allow. All letters can be read not only by addressees, but also by prison censors who decide whether to transfer the letter to an arrested person.
According to Yefimenko, Ukrainians need letters for information, since they are in an information vacuum.
The journalist recalled that 21 Ukrainian detainees are in the Lefortovo detention center in Moscow. Three more wounded sailors are in the Matrosskaya Tishina detention center in Moscow.
First Deputy Minister of Information Policy Emine Dzheppar added that the letter is currently “the most possible manifestation of support.”
Earlier, the Russian Ombudsperson, Tatyana Moskalkova, said that the Ukrainian wounded sailors were already getting up and moving independently, and December 4, they are to be visited by the Commissioner for Human Rights in Moscow Tatyana Potyaeva. Each Ukrainian captive must be placed in an eight-meter double cell.
The FSB opened a criminal case against 24 detained Ukrainians for “illegal crossing of the state border”. The Crimean “court” arrested all the sailors for two months.
