At least 21 Ukrainians are illegally held in Russia on trumped-up charges

At least 21 Ukrainians are illegally held by Russia on trumped-up charges

At least 21 Ukrainians are illegally held by Russia on trumped-up charges: 13 in Russia and 8 in Russian-occupied Crimea. One prisoner, Yuriy Yatsenko, was released. He told horrifying stories of torture in Russian imprisonment. Some prisoners have been sentenced to decades of prison, like Oleg Sentsov. Some are awaiting a sentence, like Nadiya Savchenko, who is on her 75th day of hunger strike in protest of the illegal accusations.

[hr]The #LetMyPeopleGo campaign was initiated by EuromaidanSOS to protect all Ukrainians imprisoned in Russia and occupied Crimea on political motives. Its aim is to release all the prisoners from the #LetMyPeopleGo list and controls observance of fundamental human rights, among which are freedom from torture, the right to a lawyer, the right to medical care and so on. Currently the campaign advocates for the fate of 13 prisoners in Russia and 8 prisoners in occupied Crimea.

The campaign is supported by a number of organizations in Ukraine and abroad: Centre for Civil Liberties, the Kharkiv Human Rights Group, People in Need, the “Open Dialogue” Foundation, Euromaidan Press, Euromaidan-Warsaw, the Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine and Commissioner for Human Rights.
