This was announced by Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Valeriia Lutkovska, Censor.NET reports citing Hromadske radіo.

"We are responsible for those who we have left in Crimea, as people are transferred from the Crimean prisons throughout the Russian Federation. Now I am trying to agree with the Russian ombudsman upon the transfer of people who are still kept in Crimea to our territory. Then we'll try to return those who have already been taken out, but it will be the second step," she said.

"It is necessary to find a mechanism on the basis of which they will take these people from the prison settlement and pass to my hands in Chonhar.
