President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has called on Norway to join the international campaign demanding the release of Ukrainian political prisoners held in Russia.

"I ... would also ask you to make efforts and join the international campaign demanding the release of Ukrainian political prisoners held in Russian prisons, including well-known film director Oleg Sentsov, well-known journalist Mr. Sushchenko, Crimean Tatar activists and Ukrainians of Crimea who have been held in prisons for many years only because they refused to abandon their Ukrainian passport and raised the Ukrainian flag, because of being the patriots of our state," Poroshenko said at the meeting with Foreign Minister of Norway Ine Eriksen Søreide, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

He also thanked Norway for joining the EU sanctions against Russia, which "firmly support the Ukrainian sovereignty."
