Russian Commissioner for Human Rights Tatiana Moskalkova has proposed to Ukraine to extradite prisoners who are serving sentences in Crimea. 

She stated this, noting she is receiving a lot of "very harsh" letters from the Ukrainian Ombudsperson, Kommersant Russian newspaper reports.

Moskalkova argues that "the homeland does not take them [prisoners serving sentence in Crimea] while we [Russia] offer."

Moreover, she did not miss the opportunity to use the idea of returning Ukrainians to highlight that Crimea was not Ukrainian territory.

"They committed crimes as citizens of Ukraine on the former territory of Ukraine. There is no reason to keep them in the territory of another state. However, we have not received any response. It is very important for us to send them home," the Russian Ombudsperson said.
