Former Kremlin’s prisoners meet with U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State

Former political prisoners, family members, and human rights activists informed U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent about the persecution of Ukrainians unjustly imprisoned by Russia.

“Family members, former political prisoners, and human rights defenders described for CDA Kent the suffering of those unjustly imprisoned by Russia. They are not forgotten!” the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine posted on Twitter.

The Embassy stressed that Russia and its proxies must cease their persecutions and release all Ukrainian political prisoners immediately.

As reported, according to the Prosecutor General’s Office of Ukraine, there are more than 160 illegal prisons in occupied Donetsk and Luhansk, in which more than 3,500 Ukrainian citizens are held.
