"Ukrainian human rights activists have information about at least 19 Russian citizens who have been detained on charges related to the war. They have been indicted of or already convicted for being members of illegal armed formations, espionage, waging an aggressive war and other articles of the Criminal Code of Ukraine. The Russians do not know their names and do not have much interest in the fate of these people. By holding this rally near the consulate, the activists are trying to draw attention to this sensitive topic and thus bring forward the possible swap and save Oleh Sentsov along with Ukrainian nationals unlawfully held by the Russian Federation for their political views," the rally organizers said.
