Moskalkova appealed to the Verkhovna Rada for detaining activist
MOSCOW, 24 APR — RIA Novosti. The Commissioner for human rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova sent a letter to the Ukrainian Ombudsman Lyudmila Denisova with a request for assistance in the early release of the inhabitant of the Crimea, arrested on Monday on the border with Ukraine and to international organizations, demanding to condemn the illegal actions of the Ukrainian security services.
As reported on the website of the Russian movement “the Volunteers of victory”, the inhabitant of the Crimea Elena Odnova, which, according to the press service of the movement, is a civil Russia, were detained by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies on April 23, when she went to Ukraine to relatives.
“In connection with illegal detention and violation of the rights of residents of Crimea sent an appeal to the Commissioner for human rights of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Lyudmila Denisova with a request for assistance in the early release of Elena Odnowa. Also addressed in relevant international organizations with a request to assist in the liberation of Elena Odnova and with the requirement to condemn such actions of the Ukrainian side and to help prevent them in the future”, — said in a statement Moskalkova.
She noted that the detention of Odnowa caused her extreme concern, given the fact that the Crimea is an activist of the public organization “Volunteers of victory”, and the Prosecutor General of Ukraine makes her accusations of “subversive activities” and “violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty”. Moskalkova has called such accusations absurd.
