Previously, all seized from the Kerch Strait Ukrainian sailors called themselves prisoners of war.
“Prisoners of war here is not. I do not know what they testified, because there is a consequence we can’t keep track of how the investigation is going. But I can’t accept the fact that we are talking about prisoners of war, no prisoners of war on the territory of the Russian Federation is not” – said Peskov.
He stressed that “we are talking about a case that is being investigated in connection with violation of the state border of the Russian Federation of foreign citizens”.
The lawyer Nikolai Polozov said that all detainees in the Kerch Strait Ukrainian sailors called themselves prisoners of war.
Earlier in the Crimea court stated that under the Geneva Convention, the Ukrainian sailors cannot be considered prisoners of war, as Ukraine and Russia are not at war.
We will remind, on November 25, the Russian special forces had seized two Ukrainian boats of Berdyansk and Dnipropetrovsk and tug Jana’s tray on the way to the Kerch Strait. 24 Ukrainian sailors were arrested on charges of “illegal crossing of border of the Russian Federation”. The Ukrainians are in Moscow’s Lefortovo prison and Matrosskaya Tishina.
