Russian investigators have ordered 11 captured Ukrainian sailors to undergo mental health assessment.

 “Today, the FSB [Federal Security Service of Russia] Investigation Department has ordered three more Ukrainian prisoners of war to undergo mental health assessment.  To date, 11 prisoners of war are to undergo out-patient mental health assessment,” lawyer Nikolai Polozov posted on Facebook.

He added that the defense team was against the assessment.

As reported, on November 25, 2018, Russian border ships fired on and seized three Ukrainian naval vessels moving from Odesa to Mariupol in the area of the Kerch Strait. Twenty-four Ukrainian sailors were captured. They were charged with illegally crossing Russia's border in the Black Sea. All captured sailors called themselves prisoners of war. Currently, they are held in Moscow’s remand prisons.
