 EU condemns verdict in Sentsov-Kolchenko case

The European Union sees the verdict of the City Court of Donetsk (the Rostov region, Russia) against the citizens of Ukraine Oleh Sentsov and Oleksandr Kolchenko as violation of justice and international law.

This was stated by the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, Censor.NET reports.

"Russian courts are not competent to judge acts committed outside the internationally-recognised territory of Russia. The EU considers the case to be in breach of international law and elementary standards of justice," the statement reads.

The EU called on the Russian Federation to immediately release Sentsov and Kolchenko and to guarantee their safe return to Ukraine.
