All 24 families of Ukrainian sailors, who are illegally detained in the territory of the Russian Federation, have been paid UAH 100,000 each.

This was reported by the press service of Ukraine's Ministry for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons.

“The Ministry for Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine, together with the Naval Forces, have done a great job while preparing the necessary documents and identifying all those eligible for such assistance. In particular, relatives of all sailors. I can responsibly declare that each family received UAH 100,000,” Minister for Temporarily Occupied Territories and IDPs Vadym Chernysh stated, noting that his ministry is constantly in contact with international humanitarian organizations and lawyers of the Ukrainian sailors.

As reported, on December 5, 2018, the Government adopted a resolution on support of the Ukrainian sailors, who are prisoners of war.

On November 25, Russian border ships committed aggressive actions against Ukrainian vessels that were en route from the port of Odesa to the port of Mariupol. They fired on and seized three Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait and captured 24 Ukrainian sailors.
