"The Justice Ministry explained us that it (extradition - Ed.) was a rather lengthy process . They said that each of the guys must be tried in the region one is imprisoned in. We all realize that it might just be a political decision. It may take both much and little time. The conditions that Hennadii is detained in are very poor. He is just being bullied. He is held in a disciplinary intraprison confinement virtually all the time. He had a bunk deliberately dropped on him in jail recently. Hennadii had his battery-induced injuries - large bruises on his leg - verified. The conditions are very poor. I wish the guys return home as soon as possible," she said.
