Ukrainian Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights Liudmyla Denisova and Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Lithuania Dainius Žalimas during a meeting in Vilnius discussed the issue of Ukrainian political prisoners held by the Russian Federation.

In a post on her Facebook page, she wrote: "Today in Vilnius I met with Chairman of the Constitutional Court of Lithuania Dainius Žalimas and discussed the destiny of our guys imprisoned by Russia and the methods of pressure on Russia to release them. It was nice to feel the Lithuanian support for my position on the situation with the Kremlin's hostages”.

She also informed that during the meeting an agreement was reached "to exchange experience and actively cooperate in the field of human rights protection."

As reported, about 70 Ukrainian political prisoners are held in Russia and in the territory of the occupied Crimea, including Ukrinform correspondent Roman Sushchenko, who was sentenced to 12 years in prison on trumped-up espionage charges.
