U.S. calls on Russia to immediately release all Ukrainian political prisoners

The United States called on the Russian Federation to immediately release the Crimean Tatars and other Ukrainian political prisoners, who are not provided with medical care in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

“Russia continues to arrest Crimean Tatars and 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,” the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine posted on Twitter.
