A comprehensive pressure on Russia, exerted by Ukraine and its international partners, is needed for release of Ukrainian political prisoners.

Ukrainian Parliament Vice Speaker, Presidential Commissioner for peaceful settlement of the conflict in Donbas Iryna Herashchenko said this at the presentation of film "Prisoners of the Kremlin", an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

She noted that in order to free Ukrainian political prisoners as soon as possible, the comprehensive pressure on Russia and solidarity among all those involved in relevant negotiations, i.e. diplomats, Minsk Group, the Security Service and the international partners of Ukraine, are needed.

 "Two priority issues are raised at the meetings at the international level and the President’s meetings. The first one is the security issue and the requirement to stop Russia’s attacks on Ukrainians. The second requirement is to stop killing Ukrainians in Russian prisons," she said.
