"115 people are illegally prosecuted by Russia on groundless and politically motivated accusations.

They cannot come to mainland Ukraine because of their right for freedom of movement and free choice of the place of residence," Denisova wrote.

It is noted that 18.000 Crimeans were drafted into the Russian army starting from 2015. In summer 2019, at least 3.300 people were enlisted.
