Ukrainian sailor spoke with Commissioner of the Council of Europe about problems of captives in Moscow prison. Russian Ombudsperson did not like their conversation
The captured Ukrainian sailor, Denis Hritsenko, told the Council of Europe Human Rights Commissioner Dunja Mijatović about the fact that the FSB deprived him, as well as other prisoners of war, of meetings and telephone conversations with relatives.
Lawyer of the captive Ukrainian, Nikolai Polozov, reported about the conversation on Facebook.
According to him, Mijatović with her assistant, as well as the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation, Tatyana Moskalkova visited the Lefortovo detention center on April 3.
Hritsenko spoke with Mijatović in English for about 10 minutes. He pointed out that the work of censors, who inspect the correspondence, is unsatisfactory, since the letters from relatives are delayed for 2-3 months.
I asked for special attention to be paid to the health of the wounded prisoners of war.
Ombudsperson of the Russian Federation Moskalkova did not like his conversation with Mijatović. She demanded that the translator interpreted to her everything that Denis Hritsenko told Dunja Mijatović.
Later, in a conversation with the lawyer Polozov, the Ukrainian prisoner told how he was taken for a psychiatric examination at the Serbsky Institute along with the other sailors from his court four Andriy Drach, Vyacheslav Zinchenko and Mykhailo Vlasyuk.
Earlier, Moskalkova assured Mijatović that Ukrainian prisoners have the opportunity to meet with lawyers and Ukrainian Consuls, and to correspond with their relatives.
