Ukrainian Human Rights Commissioner Liudmyla Denisova intends on Wednesday to discuss with Ombudsman of the Lithuanian Seimas Raimondas Šukys the issues of cooperation with the European network of ombudsmen regarding visits to Ukrainian political prisoners.

She wrote this on Facebook following a meeting of government representatives with the families of political prisoners on Tuesday.

"Tomorrow I will meet with the ombudsman of the Republic of Lithuania. We will resolve issues of cooperation with the European network of ombudsmen regarding visits to Ukrainian political prisoners," Denisova wrote.

In addition, she said that a meeting of representatives of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) with the families of political prisoners would be organized in the near future "in order to find a way to visit Ukrainians held in the Russian Federation and in the occupied Crimea".

As reported, Denisova urged the Russian side to adjust a list of Russians held in Ukraine for visits to them by the Russian ombudsman and grant permission for mirror visits to Ukrainian political prisoners in Russia.
