The United States Embassy in Kyiv has called on the Russian Federation to release all Ukrainian political prisoners.

The embassy made a statement regarding the latest situation in prisoners saying, “Russia continues to arrest Crimean Tatars & extend detentions of those facing politically motivated prosecution, even as it fails to adequately provide basic medical care for the imprisoned in the face of COVID-19. We urge Russia to release all Ukrainian political prisoners immediately.”
