Toni Frisch, OSCE representative, coordinator of the humanitarian working group of the Trilateral Contact Group will visit prisons and hostages in the occupied territories in eastern Ukraine in August.

Iryna Herashchenko, the representative of Ukraine in the humanitarian working group of the Trilateral Contact Group wrote this on her Facebook page upon the group’s skype conference.

"We managed to reach an agreement that OSCE representative, coordinator of the humanitarian working group Toni Frisch will visit the prisons and hostages in the occupied territories in August. We put forward the demand that he should visit the Makiyivka penal colony, where our servicemen are held, and that he should visit detained women and civilians, particularly scientist Ihor Kozlovsky," Herashchenko noted.

According to her, the participants in the skype conference drew the coordinator’s attention to the statement by the OSCE special representative on freedom of speech who had recently demanded the immediate release of Ukrainian journalist Stanislav Aseev.
