Red Cross denied full access to detainees in Donbas – OSCE coordinator

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has been denied full access to detainees in ORDLO.

The Coordinator of the Humanitarian Working Group at the Trilateral Contact Group (TCG), OSCE Ambassador Toni Frisch said this at the "OSCE in Ukraine in 2019" conference in Kyiv on Tuesday, January 28.

“We always talk about access to persons held in Russian-occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Unfortunately, ICRC was denied full and unconditional access to the detainees, despite the fact that such a decision has already been made, and that this issue has been repeatedly raised in the Normandy Four format and in the format of two participating countries of the Normandy Four at the level of ministries and a high level," Frisch said.

As Ukrinform reported, about 300 Ukrainians remain in custody in the territory of Donbas controlled by Russian militants, Crimea and Russian prisons.
