Poroshenko noted that the International Committee of the Red Cross played an important role in coordinating the issue on release of Ukrainian political prisoners and hostages.
"With Princess Sofia, who heads the Red Cross of Liechtenstein, we agreed that she will raise in Geneva the issue of the intensification of the Red Cross’s work to protect the rights of imprisoned Ukrainians in Russia and temporarily occupied territories," the president said.
